What is the Proxy?

The proxy is an optional component that can be installed in the DMZ or Locally (on the mSuite server machine) as an alternative to using the shared internet proxy - the CommonTime Switching Center (CSC).  Its purpose is to provide easier configuration and port consolidation.  See also Proxy Configurations.


Note: The Proxy on this machine should only be enabled if you are using a Local Proxy.  If you are using the CSC or a DMZ Proxy, the Local Proxy should not be configured to run.


See Proxy Configurations


       Configuring the Local Proxy

1.Expand the configuration node in the navigation tree and select Servers and Groups.  The action pane will display the configured servers
2.Right mouse click the server and select Properties from the pop-up menu
3.Select the Proxy tab. It will highlight the currently-active template, by default (Default Proxy Server Template) - we recommend that you do not change this. Click the Configuration Wizard button - with the magic wand icon. A Welcome screen will be shown.
4.On the Welcome screen, if you want to run a Local Proxy, make sure that the check box "Run the Proxy" is checked.  If you are using the CSC or a DMZ Proxy, this checkbox should be clear and the rest of the configuration is irrelevant. Click the Next button
5.The General Settings page allows you to configure 2 TCP connection points for the Proxy.  The first of these (Device) specifies the TCP host and port that will listen for connections from mobile devices.  This must be published through any firewalls as a public address that devices can connect to.  The second (Back end) specifies an address that the Connection Manager Server can be configured to use.  It will make an outbound connection to the Proxy on this address.  The Proxy will be listening for connections on this address.  In both cases, Listen address must resolve  to an IP address on the machine running the proxy.
6.Click Next to continue.
7.Click Finish to complete the wizard.
