Issue Details

I am working on LabVIEW Web Server Application on Linux OS. I want to know if it is possible to develop and deploy Web Services Applications on Linux OS.


The Web Server is available for use on Macintosh and Linux versions of LabVIEW but without Web Services Support. Web Services development requires a Windows version of LabVIEW with a Full or Professional license.

Additional Information

Support for Web services was introduced in LabVIEW 8.6 for Windows and LabVIEW Real-Time Targets. The Web services runtime engine in 8.6 and 2009 is loaded and run by LabVIEW's built-in Web Server.

In LabVIEW 2010 the Application Web Server is installed and runs by default on Windows PCs. This web server hosts all LabVIEW-built Web services and launches at system boot. Unlike earlier versions of the LabVIEW Web Server, the Application Web Server does not require LabVIEW to be running. The Application Web Server can be configured through the NI Web Configuration and Monitoring utility in a web browser. To use this utility you must install Microsoft Silverlight®. To launch the Web Configuration and Monitoring utility for your local machine, point a web browser to http://localhost:3580. From here you must select the Web Server Configuration Tool.
