I'm new with GWC and I'm trying to cache this WMS server 1. I can see layer list from this server on "A list of all the layers and automatic demos" but when I select one PNG from any layer I only see blank tiles.

What I'm doing wrong?

  • are you using GWC within GeoServer? If so can you see your data in the standard layer preview?

  • No I´m using standalone GWC. I´m trying only to cache external tiles.

You should set it, so that it points to your geoserver.
