Couldn’t Preview in Web Browser

This falls into the case of, I am blogging this in case I forget, but the other day I was playing with XPages and the “Preview in Web Browser” wasn’t working. I didn’t get an error of any kind, the page just loaded a blank page and said it was done. After way too much time spent trying to figure out WHY, it was discovered that on my Windows XP workstation, I could not have Skype open and still Preview in Web Browser. Blah blah, port 80, blah blah.

    That’s another one I discovered a day before presenting at ILUG when I was rehearsing my session. Panic ensued when I saw that one. :)

    look in Skype Options, Advanced, Connections: you should be able to disable “Use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections”
