Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 7.0 -- Adding or Editing a Web Server Connection
Main page: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, Release 7.0
Up one level: Configuration
This task enables you to:
- Configure the Gateway SIM connections between the Application Server and the Web Servers.
- Add links to the Web Server from the Administration Center. The links appear in a drop-down menu at the top of each Administration Center page.
After you install and configure the Gateway SIM on the Web Server, the Gateway SIM automatically registers the Web Server to the Application Server by opening an inbound connection from the Web Server to port 5003 on the Application Server. Successfully registered Web Servers are automatically configured on the Web Servers Page, and links to those Web Servers appear in a drop-down menu at the top of each Administration Center page.
If inbound connections are not allowed, such as in segmented meeting access (SMA) deployments or when a firewall is in use, then you need to perform this task to enable the Application Server to open an outbound "reverse connection" to port 5003 on the Web Server.
Before You Begin
- Install Gateway SIM and the Web Conferencing Server Software as described in Installing the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Server.
- Configure Gateway SIM on the Web Server. See Configuring the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Gateway System Integrity Manager.
- From the Web Server, write down the following values on the Gateway SIM tab in the MeetingPlace Gateways Configuration Utility:
- Installation Key (for reverse connection only)
- Local IP Address (for reverse connection only)
- If you plan to use a reverse connection, confirm the following configurations:
- Outbound connections to port 5003 on the Web Server are not blocked, for example, by a firewall.
- The Application Server name configured on the Web Server exactly matches the hostname that is displayed by entering the hostname command on the Application Server.
- After you add or enable a Web Server entry, the link to that Web Server does not appear until you log out and log back in to the Administration Center.
- You cannot delete Web Server entries. You can, however, disable them.
- Log in to the Administration Center.
- Click System Configuration > Web Servers.
- Click the Unit number of the Web Server.
- If the unit number was unassigned on the Web Server, click an unused or obsolete Unit number.
- Enter or confirm the FQDN and Hostname of the Web Server.
- To enable reverse connection, enter the Installation key and IP address of the Web Server.
- Set Enabled to Yes.
- Click Save.
- Repeat this task for each Web Server in the site.
