I am trying to load layers from WMS using QGIS with following adress:


I am able to connect to server and see available layers however I cannot load them on the map. I tried to change ESPG or load layers on empty project but still I can't see anything on the map.

Can you please tell me is it possible to load "siec_energetyczna" layer from this WMS and why I can't load the layers?

I saw that connection is working fine on this website: http://bialystok.geoportal2.pl/map/www/mapa.php?CFGF=wms&mylayers=%20granice%20OSM

    As well as the fact that some internal URL is advertised in the GetCapabilities response, (which is an error), also take note that the layers are scale layered and particularly siec_energetyczna which tells us: <ScaleHint min="0.141421" max="2.020305"/> – nmtoken Apr 7 '18 at 18:37

That is an unconventional WMS server to say the least - when I try to get the capabilities directly it returns a text string but no xml. However, QGis does some how manage to get a layers listing. But, it seems that contains an invalid getMap address of http://podgik-2:83/? (you can check this in the layer properties metadata) so if you go to your WMS connection and edit it you can tick the Ignore GetMap/GetTile URI reported in capabilities and QGis will work out how to request the layers directly from the same endpoint as the capabilities document and will then display data.
