Data security is of increasing concern to many organizations. In most cases, data security should be handled with multiple approaches. The first approach is to only transmit or store required information. Another approach is to encrypt the transmitted data. Your IT staff may choose to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) package or an SSH tunnel for remote access, which will encrypt data. The Director allows you to select a data security package that is appropriate for your organization.

If you are using VPN Tunneling software, you can set up the IP address to be used by Directors, cleansers, or matchers in one of two ways.

  • Start your server from the command line using the -H switch, as described in the User's Guide.or
  • Modify the Windows registry to specify the IP address to be used.

The registry format is automatically created and, as a general rule, users should not modify registry data. To use a tunneling protocol, however, you can use the Registry Editor to add a new string value to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \System\CurrentControlSet\Services\serviceName\Parameters

Add a string value for:

CleanserHost - host or IP address that a cleanser server will use to handle requests.

MatcherHost - host or IP address that a matcher cleanser will use to handle requests.

This allows the use of an IP address that is different from the default IP address. This might be used if the default IP address is incorrect due to use of VPN software or if a Tunneling protocol is required.

Another option that may be useful is to start cleanser or matcher servers with the -P option, which sets a specific port on which the cleanser or matcher will listen for service requests from the client.
