IE clients installation - wsoubry - 01-21-2011 08:53 PM

I installed a private instance of WPT with one client on EC2. Everything is working fine, but I want to use different browsers for my testing. My question is how to configure urlBlast(.ini) to use a particular browser. I tried modifying the browser=pagetest.exe key to browser=[path to iexplore.exe] and it fires up IE but does not go to the url in question.

I looked around on wiki, forum but could not find an example urlblast.ini or procedure to configure clients with different browsers. Do I need to install an additional plugin or other software?

Thanks to the WPT folks for the great product.

Many thanks, regards,
Wouter

If you just want IE, comment out the pagetest.exe reference, it will default to using IE. Those are the only 2 options right now (we're working on Chrome and Firefox).

Thanks,
