Enabling Cache for Netscape Recording and Playback
To record or playback on Netscape Navigator, make sure that the cache is turned on
for the server that is hosting the web pages or applications you are testing. If caching
is not enabled on the server, recording will not work. Your server may refer to cache
as security or some other terminology. Refer to your server documentation for
details on how to enable the cache.
It is also a good idea to make sure the cache is enabled on your browser. It is enabled
by default. To specifically enable the cache:
1. Start Netscape and click Edit > Preferences.
2. Expand the Advanced category and select Cache.
When cache is enabled, the Preferences: Cache dialog box displays values greater
than 0 for Memory Cache and Disk Cache. The Preferences: Cache dialog box
has the following default settings:
Memory Cache: 1024 KBytes
Disk Cache: 7680 KBytes
Disk Cache Folder: Should point to your user profile directory in the directory
where you installed Netscape.
To disable the cache, set the Memory Cache and the Disk Cache to 0.
NOTE: If you start the browser outside of Robot without using the Start
Browser command, you must open the rbtstart.htm page in your browser
before loading the Web pages for testing. The rbtstart.htm page loads the
Rational ActiveX Test Control, which is required for HTML testing in
Robot. By default, this file is located in C:\Program Files\Rational\
