I have installed the SDK 1.6 using the MSI installer, however, when I try to connect to the url using ports 17777 or 17778 I get an error.
I telnet the ports to check that they are open and it times out.
Is there a service that installs? Does it run in iis? what process opens the ports for the API to work?
The ports are open on the Orion server, not the system where the SDK is installed. The SDK does not include any service or IIS website - it's just a set of tools, documentation, and samples.
