I just spent half an hour playing with it and I got similar error...
I started by making a simple file for myself %testrebxr.r to make sure all the
library files were loaded.
Then tried the examples in the docs at
When I ran the first simple client test, I get this XML error:
>> xmlrpc-exec http://betty.userland.com/RPC2 [ examples.getStateName 41 ]
** XML-RPC Fault: Code: 6 Message: Poorly formed XML text, didn't find a '>'
after a '<'. (At character #174.)
** Near: make error! e
I could not see where this is coming from [but did not try very hard]. I assume
it is in the XML parse, though there may be xml-rpc changes at betty.userland
since rebXR was written.
Anyway, I invoked the server with the little test example in the Docs.
>> add 1 2
>> subtract 5 4
>> cgi-serve [ add subtract ]
Then opened another REBOL shell:
>> remote: make xmlrpc-client 
>> remote/exec [add 1 2]
** Access Error: Cannot connect to localhost
** Where: exec
** Near: con: open to-url rejoin ["tcp://" url/host ":" url/port-id]
same as you... so then I tried again with a fixed IP, and got this:
>> remote2: make xmlrpc-client 
>> remote2/set-server: http://22.214.171.124 ;my IP address created by DHCP
>> remote2/exec [add 1 2]
** Script Error: Cannot use path on none! value
** Where: rejoin
** Near: server/path server/target
Sorry I can not help your further right now. Perhaps this a clue.
I'd like to use rebXR myself, so please keep me posted.
