Remote Connections Dialog

General Information

The connection parameters of remote connections can be configured in this dialog.

Remote Server

Enter the server name or IP and the connection port (TCP/6242 by default, example: servername:6242) and the password of the remote server. The connection requires the remote access feature to be enabled on the remote server: this feature can be enabled and configured on the SystemRemote Access on the remote server. For more information, see the Remote Access topic.

The check whether the connection parameters are correct, click the Test Connection button.

HTTP Proxy

By default, ORF tries to connect to the remote server directly. However, if you have a proxy server in between the local and remote servers, click the Change Configured Proxy Settings... button to enter the proxy parameters. For more information, see the Proxy Settings topic.

Local vs Server Proxy Settings
Most proxy settings in ORF apply to all tools installed on your local computer (Administration Tool, Log Viewer and Reporting Tool). However, if the managed server utilizes the Configuration Subscription feature and pulls its configuration from a remote publisher, the proxy settings used for the synchronization may differ and should be set separately on the Configuration Subscription page.

In other words, the latter parameters will be used by the currently managed server (whether local or remote) to access the configuration on the publisher server, while the general proxy parameters will be used by all tools on the local computer when connecting to a remote server.
