Continuing with testing of the WhiteCore release of OpenSim, I amended the various configuration files to change port 8003 and ports 8010 to 8013 to use their 90xx equivalents, since those 90xx ports are open for region add-on usage through our firewalls on a test machine.
With these changes in place, an external viewer running on a home machine outside the University was able to connect to a test single instance WhiteCore Server (WhiteCoreServer.exe) and Region Server (WhiteCore.exe). A few connection errors due to LSL scripts remain which will be examined later, and are likely to be due to the use of unsupported osFunctions.
A quick test of rezzing a complex mesh, a Supercar Collada mesh, was done and that all seemed to be fine. Using the Blender Project Sintel character rigged mesh avatar also worked fine.
