The Redirector has been deprecated. In its place, use the Relay Server. See Synchronizing through a web server with the relay server.
The following setup instructions are written for the Apache web server.
For information about version support, see SQL Anywhere Supported Platforms and Engineering Status.
If you are using Tomcat, you can also use the servlet Redirector. For more information, see Servlet Redirector (deprecated).
To configure the Apache Redirector
Complete the steps in Configuring Redirector properties (for Redirectors that don't support server groups).
Copy the file mod_iaredirect.dll or mod_iaredirect.so to the appropriate directory in your web server, as follows:
If your web server is on a separate computer from the Redirector, you must copy the following files to that computer and ensure that they are in your path (Windows) or shared path (Unix). What files you need depends on what, if any, encryption you are using.
The following file locations are relative to your SQL Anywhere installation directory:
|RSA encryption with FIPS||
Update the Apache web server configuration file httpd.conf as follows.
LoadModule iaredirect_module modules/mod_iaredirect.dll
or the following line for Solaris and Linux:
LoadModule iaredirect_module modules/mod_iaredirect.so
<Location /iaredirect/ml> SetHandler iaredirect-handler iaredirectorConfigFile location/redirector.config </Location>
where /iaredirect/ml is the relative URL path that you use to invoke the Redirector, and location is the directory where redirector.config is located.
MaxSyncUsers number The maximum number of MobiLink users synchronizing through the Redirector. This number is used to allocate necessary resources to the Redirector. This number cannot be less than 60. The default is 1000. Only change this setting if the default number of users is less than the actual number.
ShmemDiagnosis on|off If set to on, debugging of the memory resource is allowed. The default is off.
To help with debugging, you may want to increase the amount of logging information that the Redirector outputs. To do this, modify the LogLevel directive in httpd.conf and set it to LogLevel info. The log level can be (from most to least verbose): debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit, alert, and emerg.
Following are examples of the sections of httpd.conf that configure the Apache web server to route requests to the MobiLink server. This example works for Windows. For UNIX and Linux, change mod_iaredirect.dll to mod_iaredirect.so.
LoadModule iaredirect_module modules/mod_iaredirect.dll ... <Location /iaredirect/ml> SetHandler iaredirect-handler iaredirectorConfigFile c:/redirector.config </Location>
To test your configuration
Call the Redirector using the following syntax:
where iaredirect/ml is the relative URL path you specified in the <Location> tag of httpd.conf.
Check the log file to see if the Redirector logged a request. The default location of the log file is $APACHE_HOME/logs/error.log.
Note: This test does not make a connection to the MobiLink server.
