Setting Up a Two-Way Direct Connection Using a Predefined Network Topology

You can create a network topology instance in which members of either client group can connect to members of the other client group.

Before You Begin

  • Verify that the client groups that you want to use in the network topology instance are already defined in the CommCell Console or the Command Center.
  • You must have Administrative Management permissions on the client groups that you plan to use in the network topology instance.
  • Note the following regarding port requirements:
    • Tunnel port: Default = 8403 (CVD port plus 3) should be open on both sides. If you want to change the default tunnel port, see Updating Incoming Ports on Client Computers.
    • Optional port: Default = 8400 (CVD port).
    • Both DMZ servers/infrastructure computers and servers/laptops should be able to open connections to each other on the tunnel port.

Procedure

  1. From the Command Center navigation pane, go to Manage > Network > Network Topologies.
  2. The Network topologies page appears.
  3. Click Add topology.

    The Add topology dialog box appears.

  4. In the Name field, enter a name for this instance of a two-way direct connection.
  5. For Client type, select Servers.
  6. From the Topology type list, select Two-way.
  7. From the Servers list, select the server group that will initiate connections with members of the Infrastructure machines group.
