Cannot populate a Ext GridPanel through GeoExt WMSCapabilitiesStore

I'm using Mapserver + GeoExt, but i can't not recive any data from this request, any one know how to use that?

var grid = new Ext.grid.GridPanel({
                    title: "Availables WMS Layers",
                    renderTo: document.body, 
                    width: 800,
                    height: 150,
                    viewConfig: {forceFit: true},
                    store: new GeoExt.data.WMSCapabilitiesStore({
                        url: "http://localhost:8085/fcgi-bin/wms.exe?SERVICE=WMS&REQUEST=GetCapabilities&VERSION=1.1.1",
                        autoLoad: true
                    columns: [
                        {header: "Name", dataIndex: "name", sortable: true}

Assuming your http://localhost:8085/fcgi-bin/wms.exe?SERVICE=WMS&REQUEST=GetCapabilities&VERSION=1.1.1 link is working, then this is likely to be a cross-domain issue:

  • This is a diferent question, because i'm using MapSever, in this example the answer is about GeoServer. – Michel Andrade Jul 3 '11 at 14:04

    It's the same problem. You can't load data from a different URL or port number in a browser. You need a proxy, or run on the same port. – geographika Jul 3 '11 at 14:55
  • OK! In my example using this address: localhost:8085/fcgi-bin/wms.exe How can i define this proxy? Some thing like that? I do not have a file named "proxy.cgi". OpenLayers.ProxyHost = "/fcgi-bin/proxy.cgi?url="; – Michel Andrade Jul 3 '11 at 15:00
  • I take a look at proxy.cgi configuration, but i'm work with Windows and Apache, so in this way, i'll need to configure and install python!? – Michel Andrade Jul 3 '11 at 15:09
