Deploy Synchronization Model Wizard: MobiLink Server Stream Parameters page

This page allows you to choose communication stream parameters that apply only to the MobiLink server.

This page has the following components:

  • Additional server stream options   If necessary, type additional server stream options, separated by semicolons, in the form ( option=value;... ). See -x mlsrv12 option.

    The following table lists the options you can specify.

    • TCP/IP options   If you specify the tcpip protocol, you can optionally specify the following protocol options:

      TCP/IP protocol option Description
      host=hostname The host name or IP number on which the MobiLink server should listen. The default value is localhost.
      ignore=hostname A host name or IP number that gets ignored by the MobiLink server if it makes a connection. This option allows you to ignore requests from load balancers at the lowest possible level, preventing excessive output in the MobiLink server log and MobiLink Monitor output files. You can specify multiple hosts to ignore; for example -x tcpip(ignore=lb1;ignore=123.45.67.89). If you specify multiple instances of -x on a command line, the host is ignored on all instances; for example, if you specify -x tcpip(ignore=1.1.1.1) -x http, then connections for 1.1.1.1 are ignored on both the TCP/IP and the HTTP streams.
      port=portnumber The socket port number on which the MobiLink server should listen. The default port is 2439, which is the IANA registered port number for the MobiLink server.

    • Options for TCP/IP with transport-layer security   If you specify the TLS protocol, which is TCP/IP with transport-layer security, you can optionally specify the following protocol options:

      TLS protocol options Description
      e2ee_private_key=file

      The PEM or DER encoded file containing the RSA or ECC private key. This option is required for end-to-end encryption to take effect.

      PEM and DER encoded files are created using the createkey utility. See Key Pair Generator utility (createkey).

      e2ee_private_key_password=password

      The password to the private key file. This option is required for end-to-end encryption to take effect.

      When this option is specified, the e2ee_private_key parameter must also be specified.

      To avoid making this password visible in the MobiLink server command line, use the dbfhide utility. See File Hiding utility (dbfhide).

      e2ee_type={ rsa | ecc }

      The type of the key used to exchange session keys for end-to-end encryption. Must be either rsa or ecc, and must match the key type in the private key file (see e2ee_private_key option). The default e2ee_type is rsa.

      When this option is specified, the e2ee_private_key option must also be specified.

      fips={yes|no} If you specify the TLS protocol with tls_type=rsa, you can specify fips=yes to accept connections using the TCP/IP protocol and FIPS-certified encryption algorithms. FIPS-certified connections use separate FIPS 140-2 certified software. Servers using RSA encryption without FIPS-certified encryption are compatible with clients using RSA that have the fips option enabled. Servers using RSA with the fips option enabled are compatible with clients using RSA that do not have the fips option enabled.
      host=hostname The host name or IP number on which the MobiLink server should listen. The default value is localhost.
      identity=identity-file The path and file name of the identity file that is to be used for server authentication.
      identity_password=password

      An optional parameter that specifies a password for the identity file.

      When this option is specified, the identity option must also be specified.

      See Transport-layer security.

      To avoid making this password visible in the MobiLink server command line, use the dbfhide utility. See File Hiding utility (dbfhide).

      ignore=hostname A host name or IP number that gets ignored by the MobiLink server if it makes a connection. This option allows you to ignore requests from load balancers at the lowest possible level, preventing excessive output in the MobiLink server log and MobiLink Monitor output files. You can specify multiple hosts to ignore; for example -x tcpip(ignore=lb1;ignore=123.45.67.89).
      port=portnumber The socket port number on which the MobiLink server should listen. The default port is 2439, which is the IANA registered port number for the MobiLink server.
      tls_type={ rsa | ecc }

      If you specify the protocol as tls, you can specify either elliptic-curve cryptography (ecc) or RSA encryption (rsa). For backward compatibility, ecc can also be specified as certicom. The default tls_type is rsa.

      When you use TLS, you must specify an identity and an identity password:

      • identity=identity-file   Specify the path and file name of the identity file that is to be used for server authentication.

      • identity_password=password   Specify the password for the identity.

      See Starting the MobiLink server with transport-layer security.

    • HTTP options   If you specify the http protocol, you can optionally specify the following protocol options:

      HTTP options Description
      buffer_size=number The maximum body size for an HTTP message sent from MobiLink server, in bytes. Changing the option decreases or increases the amount of memory allocated for sending HTTP messages. The default is 65536 bytes.
      host=hostname The host name or IP number on which the MobiLink server should listen. The default value is localhost.
      log_bad_request={yes|no} When set to yes, the MobiLink server prints an error if it receives an incomplete or unexpected HTTP request. These errors are analogous to those printed by the -vf option. The default is no. See -v mlsrv12 option.
      port=portnumber The socket port number on which the MobiLink server should listen. The default port is 80.
      version=http-version The MobiLink server automatically detects the HTTP version used by a client. This parameter is a string specifying the default version of HTTP to use if the server cannot detect the version used by the client. You have a choice of 1.0 or 1.1. The default value is 1.1.

    • HTTPS options   The HTTPS protocol uses RSA or ECC digital certificates for transport-layer security. If you specify FIPS encryption, the protocol uses separate FIPS 140-2 certified software that is compatible with https. See Starting the MobiLink server with transport-layer security.

      If you specify the https protocol, you can optionally specify the following protocol options:

      HTTPS options Description
      buffer_size=number The maximum body size for an HTTPS message sent from MobiLink server, in bytes. Changing the option decreases or increases the amount of memory allocated for sending HTTPS messages. The default is 65536 bytes.
      e2ee_private_key=file

      The PEM or DER encoded file containing the rsa or ecc private key. This option is required for end-to-end encryption to take effect.

      PEM and DER encoded files are created using the createkey utility. See Key Pair Generator utility (createkey).

      e2ee_private_key_password=password

      The password to the private key file. This option is required for end-to-end encryption to take effect.

      When this option is specified, the e2ee_private_key option must also be specified.

      To avoid making this password visible in the MobiLink server command line, use the dbfhide utility. See File Hiding utility (dbfhide).

      e2ee_type={ rsa | ecc }

      The type of the key used to exchange session keys for end-to-end encryption. Must be either rsa or ecc, and must match the key type in the private key file (see e2ee_private_key option). The default e2ee_type is rsa.

      When this option is specified, the e2ee_private_key option must also be specified.

      fips={yes|no} If you specify the TLS protocol with tls_type=rsa, you can specify fips=yes to accept connections using the TCP/IP protocol and FIPS-certified encryption algorithms. FIPS-certified connections use separate FIPS 140-2 certified software. Servers using RSA encryption without FIPS-certified encryption are compatible with clients using RSA that have the fips option enabled. Servers using RSA with the fips option enabled are compatible with clients using RSA that do not have the fips option enabled.
      host= hostname The host name or IP number on which the MobiLink server should listen. The default value is localhost.
      identity=server-identity The path and file name of the identity file that is to be used for server authentication.
      identity_password=password

      An optional parameter that specifies a password for the identity file.

      tls_type={ rsa | ecc }

      If you specify the TCP/IP protocol as tls, you can specify either elliptic-curve cryptography (ecc) or RSA encryption (rsa). For backward compatibility, ecc can also be specified as certicom. The default tls_type is rsa.

      When you use transport-layer security, you must specify an identity and an identity password:

      • identity=identity-file   Specify the path and file name of the identity file that is to be used for server authentication.

      • identity_password=password   Specify the password for the identity file.

      See Starting the MobiLink server with transport-layer security.

      version=http-version The MobiLink server automatically detects the HTTP version used by a client. This parameter is a string specifying the default version of HTTP to use if the server cannot detect the version used by the client. You have a choice of 1.0 or 1.1. The default value is 1.1.

    • OE options   Use an integrated Outbound Enabler when using the Relay Server. You cannot include more than one -x oe option on the server command line.

      If you specify the oe protocol, you can optionally specify the following protocol options (these options are case sensitive):

      OE protocol option Description
      config=file

      The Outbound Enabler configuration file. It has the same format as a configuration file for the stand-alone Outbound Enabler, except you should not specify the -cs switch within the file.

      You must specify exactly one configuration file.
