What is the HTTP Data Replication Server?

The HTTP Data Replication Server is one of two server-side components used by mDesign.  It deploys and synchronizes mDesign 'cross platform' applications and data with suitable* mobile devices.  This service is only required if you are using mDesign.

* Most devices that have a fully compliant HTML5 browser will be suitable.  Contact CommonTime support for the latest information on supported devices.


       Configuring the HTTP Data Replication Server

1.It is strongly recommended that you do not change the configuration of the HTTP Data Replication Server unless advised to do so by CommonTime Support.
2.Expand the configuration node in the navigation tree and select Servers and Groups.  The action pane will display the configured servers
3.Right mouse click the server and select Properties from the pop-up menu.
4.Select the HTTP Data Replication tab.  It will highlight the currently-active template, which is normally the default template that we recommend not be altered (Default HTTP Data Replication Settings).  Click the Configuration Wizard button - with the magic wand icon.
5.On the Welcome screen, make sure that the box Run the HTTP Data Replication Service is checked and then click the Next button.
6.The General Settings page allows you to configure the TCP ports that the Data Replication Service will use.  The default is to listen on all interfaces on the current machine "*" on port 616.
7.Now select the certificate that will be used for SSL encryption. The default is mSuite CA, this is the self signed certificate created by the mSuite installer.   This is OK if you are using the CSC - however, if you are using your own mSuite Proxy, you will need to use your own certificate.  This certificate will be installed on and served up by the HTTP Data Replication Server but the certificate must relate to the machine where the mSuite Proxy is installed because that is the machine that devices actually connect to (devices are not aware that their connections are forwarded to the HTTP Data Replication Server server).


Note: The characteristics of the certificate are described here.  To change to another certificate, that certificate must be installed on the machine running the HTTP Data Replication Server and appear in the list of available certificates.  If this is not the case, use the Add certificate button to include your certificate and then select it from the list.

8.Press Next to continue.
9.Click Finish to complete the wizard.
