Can Not Connect using the Data Portal

This is what I get when trying to connect with a remote computer using the Data Portal.

AyaNova was unable to start

Depending on how early in startup the problem occurred,
a detailed log of the problem with suggestions may have
been saved to the file AyaLog.txt
located at: file:\C:\Program Files\Ground Zero Tech-Works Inc\AyaNova 3

Error details:
Unhandled Exception:
The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.
Inner exception: The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure.

Hi Tom

I have not encountered this message before.

  1. What version of AyaNova is in use (log into AyaNova, select menu Help -> About AyaNova)

  2. What file versions of Data Portal are in use? open Windows Explorer, open C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\AyaNovaDP\bin folderand find the file GTZW.AyaNova.BLL.dll:

  • what is the file date of this file?

  • right-click on this file, select Properties, and provide the version for this file

  • Joyce

Hello Joyce:

  1. The version of Ayanova that I am using is the latest. it says

  2. The file GTZW.Ayanova.BLL.dll ver is


Hi again Tom

As we have two things happening - a WBI issue plus a Data Portal issue - I’m leaning towards something with IIS - butif you can provide the requested in my post on will start will those, and go from there.

Tom has provided the AyaNova.exe.config file from a remote computer for me to try.

The configuration file is using https:// instead of http:// as in : class=cite cite="" type=“cite”> class=cite cite="" type=“cite”>

<add key=“PortalServer” value=“” />

whereas the config line should be as: class=cite cite="" type=“cite”> class=cite cite="" type=“cite”>

<add key=“PortalServer” value=" http://" />

Once the config file was edited, the following error occurs trying to connect to the database via DataPortal dir=ltr " "> dir=ltr " ">

Error details:
Unhandled Exception:
Unable to connect to the remote server
Inner exception: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

This message can be a result of many different causes - first is to confirm that the URL is actually correct. Am presently awaiting response on what the actual external IP address and port number for the IIS server connection is from Tom as well as additional information requested in the corresponding topic

If anyone has experienced this type of error and would like to post their solution, that is always welcome too.

Hi everyone, I wanted to post here what the issues were in the event this occurs for any other Data Portal user:

  1. AyaNovaDP sites Properties in the Directory Security tab had Secure Communications enabled when should be set as below:

  1. AyaNova.exe.config file used by the remote user was incorrectly using https:// in the URL as identified in the posting above

  2. AyaNova.exe.config file used by the remote user was incorrectly pointing to an invalid site name - resulting in the error "<SPAN “FONT-SIZE: 11pt; FONT-FAMILY: ‘Times New Roman’; mso-fareast-font-family: ‘Times New Roman’; mso-ansi-language: EN-US; mso-fareast-language: EN-US; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA”>Inner exception: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it - once the actual web site name/ip address was used, able to log in.</SPAN>
