PCS Management client ssl connection
« on: November 19, 2020, 01:31:22 am »
Hi,
I would like to manage PCS with a dedicated PC with client installed on it, is it possible to secure the connection with SSL ?
I'd like to use the client and not webconfig.

Many thanks

Hi, Do you want to connect to EA models through PCS HTTPS connection?
If yes, please refer to Section 3.5 this guide

Hi,
thanks for your answer,
no, I want to connect Pro Cloud Config Client (currently TCP 803) through secure connection.

Hi Typia,
There is no way to connect the Pro Cloud Config Client via https that I'm aware of. It's only intended to be accessed this way on a private network.

The description from the config file:

Code: [Select]
# The SERVER_PORT setting defines the TCP Port that the
# Configuration Client and the ISAPI module will communicate on.
# It is NOT recommended to expose this port outside of
# your private network.
SERVER_PORT=803

If you need to manage the configuration over https then I'd suggest using WebConfig instead.
