I have preexisting caches of maps that I would like to turn into a WMS. I am trying to implement this through Geoserver/Geowebcache. I tweaked the web.xml file to set the Geowebcache_Cache_Dir to the directory with the preexisting cache. I then put the appropriate information into geowebcache.xml and Geoserver can see the cache under Tile Layers, from here I can open it in OpenLayers, however, I can't ping the cache through a WMS call from arcgis or google earth. I checked the box for direct integration with Geoserver WMS but I still cannot seem to get external softwares to see the WMS. I checked fiddler and it seems to be hitting the tiles in openlayers through /geoserver/gwc/service/wms?blahblahblah. If I try to hit that WMS endpoint from anything else I get the ever so helpful error 400.
Does anyone know the proper method for building a WMS from a cache using this software?
