Javascript error in openerp.base.js

Asked by Jonathan Liuti

I've just finished to set up an openerp server.

When accessing it through the web-client on my local network everything was runing smooth.

I just put the box in the production environnement where I don't have the network infrastructure under control.
I asked for a port mapping on 8080 and I can access the web-client from the outside.
I can login and i can browser through the top menu and all.

My problem is that the left side menu is not working. It's throwing the following javascript error

Erreur : xhr.getResponseHeader(
Fichier Source :
Ligne : 112

Here is the http request

I don't get any http answer the status in firebug is "aborted".

I really have no clue what's happening here.

I hope someone more aknowledged can help me out.


ubuntu lts 10.04 up_to_date
openerp v6.0.1 (both web-client and server, no fancy module installed, all base core module).

After digging in, it was the firewall in the production environnement that blocked the url used by the side menu because it was suspiciously too long.

Case closed.
