Server Properties

The Server Properties dialog box allows you to configure the NKLS settings.

Main

The Main area specifies the NKLS configuration.

         Caption. Specify the text to be displayed on the title bar of the NKLS window (e.g. MyApplication 1.0). The caption helps to identify the application that the NKLS is serving. This is especially useful when multiple NKLSs are running at the same time.

         Port. Specify a TCP port number for the NKLS. The port number must be different from any other port in use on the server. When multiple NKLSs are used to handle different applications, each NKLS must be assigned a different port number.

         Idle Time. Specify the time (in minutes) that the application can remain connected to the NKLS without any message exchanged. When the number of concurrent clients reaches the limit, an idle connection will be disconnected as soon as a new client establishes a connection to the NKLS.

Specify User Addresses

The Specify User Addresses area allows you to specify the client IP addresses that are authorized to connect to the NKLS.

 

         Allow NAT Connections. Enable this checkbox if the specified client IP addresses are behind a NAT (Network Address Translation) and you want to allow them to connect to the NKLS. If you do not specify the NAT IP address, the specified client IP addresses behind any NAT can connect to the NKLS. If you specify the NAT IP address, only the specified client IP addresses behind the specified NAT IP address can connect to the NKLS.

The added authorized client IP addresses are listed in the text box in the following format: X.X.X.X X.X.X.X [X.X.X.X], where all zeros 0.0.0.0 indicates any IP address. If you enable the option to allow NAT connections, the NAT IP address is shown in the square brackets, where all zeros 0.0.0.0 indicates that any NAT IP address is allowed.

Specify User Physical Addresses

The Specify User Physical Addresses area allows you to specify the client physical (or MAC) addresses that are authorized to connect to the NKLS.

NetKey Manager Authentication

The NetKey Manager Authentication area allows you to assign a username and password so that the NetKey Manager program can logon and monitor the NKLS.
