Install cognos 7.5 on distributed windows 2008 R2 (64bit)

Has anyone successfully install cognos 7.5 on distributed windows 2008 R2 (64bit)?

It's working fine when i install all components on a single machine and I can open TOC, great outdoor cube.
But i've never get it work in the distributed environment. I have 2 windows 2008 R2 64bit server, one is the web server(server1)  and another one is the application server (server2) . I installed gateway components on the web server. when I type http://webserver/cognos/cgi-bin/ppdscgi.exe, it can't show TOC and it can't open the great outdoor cube on application server (server2). I noticed that ppdsweb.exe was initiated on application server, but there's no temporary html files created in TEMP directory.

Has anyone have any idea to resolve the problem?



i did it successfully some month ago. Have you defined the alias-entrys relative?

Kind regards



Thank you for the reply. So sorry for the late response. IBM tech support helped to fix the issue: set 'Restrict the Outgoing Web Port' to TURE no matter firewall exists or not.
