BIM Server 18 is accessible but a project cannot be joined/shared- Proxy server is used


BIM Server Manager is accessible from the browser, but upon sharing/joining a project ARCHICAD returns the error message “Couldn´t connect to the server”. V18 Module is running. Proxy server is used, BIM server is on the bypass list.


Wildcard is used instead of the IP address of the BIM server on the bypass list. There are three form of Wildcards: the * could be at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of the IP or server name. ARCHICAD ignores them if the last two forms (middle, end) are used.
