External Access Client

External Access Client
Foundation 23.1

The External Access Client must connect to a Cloud Platform Engineering (CPE) server in order to report usage statistics to your solution provider. To configure your connection, you need to configure settings in the Application Server's web.config file.

To connect to a CPE server:

  1. Locate the web.config file of your Application Server.
  2. Open the file in a plain text editor, such as Notepad.

    Do not edit the Web.config file in a binary editor, such as Microsoft Word. Editing this file in a binary editor can introduce additional characters that generate errors when processes attempt to read the information contained in the file.

  3. Locate the appSettings configuration node.
  4. For the GCSUsername key, set the value to the user name for your administrative account on the server.
  5. For the GCSPassword key, set the value to the password of your administrative account on the server.
  6. For the GCSPhoneHomeIntervalInMinutes key, set the value to the number of minutes that determines how often CPE contacts the External Access Client to obtain usage statistics.
  7. Save and close the web.config file.
