Connect to MobiLink Server window

This window lets you connect to a running MobiLink server. A MobiLink Monitor connection is like a synchronization connection to the MobiLink server in that most of the parameters are the same. You must use parameters that are compatible with the settings of the MobiLink server. For all MobiLink Monitor sessions, the script version is set to for_MLMonitor_only.

This window has the following components:

  • User   Type the name of the MobiLink user for the connection. If you started the MobiLink server with -zu+, then it doesn't matter what user ID you supply.

  • Password   Type a password for the connection. This must be the correct password for the MobiLink user you specify. Leave this field blank if the MobiLink user does not have a password.

  • Host   The network name or IP address of the computer on which the MobiLink server is running. By default, it is the computer where the MobiLink Monitor is running. You can use localhost if the MobiLink server is running on the same computer as the MobiLink Monitor.

  • Protocol   Select the communications stream protocol to be used for the connection. This protocol and port should be set to the same protocol and port as the MobiLink server is using for synchronization requests.

    • HTTP   Select this option to connect via HTTP. By default, HTTP version 1.1 is used.

      • Port   The MobiLink server communicates over a specific port. By default, the port number is 80 for HTTP. If you choose a value other than this, you must configure your MobiLink server to listen on the port you specify.

    • HTTPS   Select this option to connect via HTTPS.

      • Port   The MobiLink server communicates over a specific port. By default, the port number is 443 for HTTPS. If you choose a value other than this, you must configure your MobiLink server to listen on the port you specify.

      • Encryption   Choose the same type of encryption that the MobiLink server is using. By default, the HTTPS communication stream uses RSA security.

        The following options are supported for encryption:

        • ECC   Elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC) requires a separate license.

        • RSA   RSA encryption is provided free with SQL Anywhere.

        • RSA (FIPS 140-2 certified)   Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 specifies requirements for security algorithms. FIPS 140-2 is granted by the American and Canadian governments through the National Institute of Standards and Testing (NIST) and the Canadian Communications Security Establishment (CSE). FIPS-certified encryption requires a separate license.

        To use HTTPS or TLS, you must have MobiLink client-side data stream encryption installed on the computer running the MobiLink Monitor. For more information about security, see MobiLink client/server communications encryption.

        Note

        Separately licensed component required.

        ECC encryption and FIPS-certified encryption require a separate license. All strong encryption technologies are subject to export regulations.

        See Separately licensed components.

      • Trusted Certificate File   Type the name of the trusted certificate file to be used for a secure connection to the MobiLink server, or click Browse to search for a file. For Windows platforms, the trusted certificate store is used if a trusted certificate file is not specified. Non-Windows platforms require a trusted certificate file for a secure connection.

    • TCP/IP   Select this option to connect via TCP/IP.

      • Port   The MobiLink server communicates over a specific port. By default, the port number is 2439 for TCP/IP. If you choose a value other than this, you must configure your MobiLink server to listen on the port you specify.

    • TLS (TCP/IP with transport layer security)   Select this option to connect via TCP/IP with transport layer security.

      • Port   The MobiLink server communicates over a specific port. By default, the port number is 2439 for TLS (TCP/IP with transport layer security). If you choose a value other than this, you must configure your MobiLink server to listen on the port you specify.

      • Encryption   Choose the same type of encryption that the MobiLink server is using.

        The following options are supported for encryption:

        • ECC   Elliptic-curve cryptography (ECC) requires a separate license.

        • RSA   RSA encryption is provided free with SQL Anywhere.

        • RSA (FIPS 140-2 certified)   Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 specifies requirements for security algorithms. FIPS 140-2 is granted by the American and Canadian governments through the National Institute of Standards and Testing (NIST) and the Canadian Communications Security Establishment (CSE). FIPS-certified encryption requires a separate license.

        To use TLS, you must have MobiLink client-side data stream encryption installed on the computer running the MobiLink Monitor. For more information about security, see MobiLink client/server communications encryption.

      • Trusted Certificate File   Type the name of the trusted certificate file to be used for a secure connection to the MobiLink server, or click Browse to search for a file. For Windows platforms, the trusted certificate store is used if a trusted certificate file is not specified. Non-Windows platforms require a trusted certificate file be specified for a secure connection.

  • Additional protocol options   Specify optional network parameters in this field. The allowed values depend on the connection stream type. Multiple parameters should be separated by a semicolon.

    All valid MobiLink client network protocol options are supported, except for those already set in this window, such as host, port and trusted certificate.
