Obviously, not as easy to install Papyrus as it says on the web site. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Sorry, I'm not a computer programmer, just a poor little systems engineer who wants to be able to use the Papyrus SysML modeling tool. However, when I click on the "Install Modeling Component" option under the "Help" menu, I only get the title of this posting: "Can't connect to discovery source..." It asks me to make sure I'm connected to the Internet. Trust me, I am. (Otherwise, how could I be posting this message right now?)

Any tips for a non-programmer?

Thanks.

Luis

Luis,

Are you behind a corporate firewall or some other kind of firewall that
might block IP traffic?

I don't believe I'm behind a firewall. I'm using my desktop computer at home, connected to the Internet via a commercial ISP (AT&T U-verse). I've never received any messages implying I have a firewall blocking my access to any Internet web site I've ever tried to connect to. My computer security settings show that the firewall that is part of Windows Vista is "on" (green light on), but once I open the firewall settings window, it says my computer is "unprotected" because the Windows firewall is "off," so I don't know what to make of that. I do run the Norton Internet Security suite, which I keep updated, so I've never bothered to mess with the Windows firewall. Could that be the problem here?

Thanks.

Luis

Luis,

I know this works fine for me. You might try disabling Norton and
Windows security and try again to see if that's related. Can you do
other things that require the internet from Eclipse, i.e., Help->Install
New Software picking the Juno site?
