Take these steps to configure VLProxy for integration with Clarify.
- Stop the VLProxy server (if not already).
- Using a command prompt (from the VLProxy install folder), run the vlproxyc –p command.
- When prompted for a password, enter the default Admin (or whichever password you have assigned) and press Enter. The VLProxy Configuration Parameters screen appears.
- Enter the Serial Number for the Clarify server (cluster or single) that will communicate with VLProxy. This serial number can be found on both the Clarify Server and Studio Information screen. To view, go to Clarify Studio’s main menu: Help -> View Clarify Studio Information.
When connecting to a server cluster, other information, in addition to the serial number is necessary:
- The IP Address for each server node in the cluster.
- The Node Type for every possible node that has the possibility of communicating with VLProxy. This means that both active and passive nodes need to be included.
Format: <Serial Number>-<IP address>-<Node type>
Node type is indicated by a “W” (for worker) and “R” (for receiver). Coordinators do not need to be addressed.
This example below shows three server nodes, each with a receiver node and a worker node. Each node must be separated by a comma
CY1675-IC84334-10.10.20.33-R,CY1675-IC84334-10.10.20.34-R,CY1675-IC84334-10.10.20.35-R, CY1675-IC84334-10.10.20.33-W,CY1675-IC84334-10.10.20.34-W,CY1675-IC84334-10.10.20.35-WNote: If configuring a single Clarify server, then just the serial number is enough.
- Complete these additional configuration parameters, if required for reverse proxy. These include:
- Internal Address: Used during the reverse proxy process, this is the address of VLProxy when accessed from your internal network.
- Internal Network IDs: Used during the reverse proxy process, this parameter is used to specify the start of addresses (partial addresses) on your internal network.
- External Address: Used during the reverse proxy process, this address is sent to Clarify. This address should be the address of VLProxy.
- External Reverse Proxy HTTP Ports: Used during the reverse proxy process. VLProxy listens on these ports for incoming HTTP connections. The HTTP login is verified against those identified by Clarify.
- External Reverse Proxy HTTPs Ports: Used during the reverse proxy process. VLProxy listens on these ports for incoming HTTP/s connections. The HTTP login is verified against those identified by Clarify.
- Enter “0” to exit the configuration screen.
