Mitch, thanks for response. I am attaching the log files.****
I am not sure how the Google authentication works. Does the IP address
have to be publically accessible on the internet? Or can it be behind a
local IP address in a LAN like 192.168…? ****
In any case I know the answer is no. I have already set up an older
version of Aggregate in the office and it worked fine. I believe there is
now a version incompatibility with my current setup.****
I would expect the only reason for using a commercial DNS is to have users
access the machine regardless of IP changes. However this is not an issue
at the moment. ****
Thanks for your help****

If you've identified this as an issue of having your machine name be
recognized and reachable from Google, there are various free Dynamic DNS
services that can give you a publicly-visible name for your machine. You
would need to re-run the installation process and specify that name at that
time (so that the ODK Aggregate configuration is aware of and uses it).

I have tried to set up Aggregate on 3 windows machines and I always
get this error when I first click on Sign in with Google on my first
I have tried opening another tab in the browser and logining into my
gmail account first, then trying to access Aggregate, but no luck.
I have tried connecting to the internet using my mobile phone (direct
access) rather than over corporate LAN, but no luck.
I have installed on XP and on Windows 7, I have tried Postgres and
Mysql databases, FF and chrome clients.
I have tried using either my IP address or my PC name (fully
qualified). Clearly the PC name only exists within my corporate

I am now fairly exhausted.
