Route Settings

Use this dialog to specify outgoing route to reach the remote client/client group from this CommCell entity.

Remote Group/Client

Select the remote client/client group for which you wish to specify the outgoing route.

Route Type

  • Direct

    Select this option if a direct connection can be made to the remote client/client group.

  • Port Forwarding

    Select this option and specify the settings if the connection is routed through a port forwarder.

  • Network Gateway

    Select this option and specify the network gateway settings if the connection is routed through a network gateway.

Tunnel Connection Protocol

  • Regular

    Select this option to use HTTP protocol for outgoing communication.

  • Authenticated

    Select this option to encrypt the initial authentication and communication between clients using the HTTPS protocol. Once authenticated, the tunnel connection optimizes data transfer by switching to HTTP protocol.

  • Encrypted

    Select this option to use HTTPS protocol for outgoing communication.

  • Raw

    This option forces outgoing communication to not use any form of HTTP. Use it when network equipment modifies the packet stream, thereby preventing communication. See Configuring Tunnel Connection Protocols for details.

Force all data (along with control) traffic into the tunnel

Select this option to force backup and restore data traffic through the tunnel connection. Optional for Direct and Port Forwarding routes; required (and automatically selected) for Network Gateway routes.

Selecting this option encrypts data traffic, which may slow operations.

Port Forwarding Settings

The following options define the port forwarding settings.

  • Port Forwarding Hostname

    Specifies the hostname of the port-forwarding computer.

  • Port Forwarding Tunnel Port

    Specifies the port on which the tunnel connections are received on the port forwarding computer.

Additional destination port mapping

These options are available when configuring clients (but not client groups), when the Route Type is set to Port Forwarding.

  • PF Port

    Specify the additional port that can receive incoming connections. Click Add to add the port to the list of port forwarding ports.

  • Destination Port

    Specify the destination port on the remote client/client group that is mapped to the PF Port.


Click to add the port combination shown in PF Port and Destination Port.


Select a port from the PF Port list and click Delete to remove the port combination. Hold down CTRL to select more than one.

Network Gateway Settings

  • Remote Gateway

    Select the network gateway computer through which communication to the remote client/client group must be routed.
