Options when using a web server

The Redirector is one way to route MobiLink synchronization through a web server. The Redirector is particularly useful for synchronizing across a firewall or with multiple MobiLink servers.

The main reason for routing requests through a web server is to use existing web server and firewall configurations for HTTP or HTTPS synchronization. The Redirector is most useful when you have more than one MobiLink server.

You can also route synchronizations through a web server without using the Redirector. In this case, you might configure your web server as a proxy to route synchronizations to a MobiLink server. For more information on how to do this with your web server, see your web server documentation.

The following table contains recommendations to help you decide how best to route your MobiLink synchronizations.

Direct connection possibleDirect connection not possible
One MobiLink serverUse TCP/IP instead of HTTPUse an HTTP or HTTPS proxy to pass messages through the web server to the MobiLink server
Multiple MobiLink serversUse the Redirector with HTTP or HTTPSUse the Redirector with HTTP or HTTPS
