In the years that we have been doing ILINX Capture implementations a common question usually comes up from the IT Administrators; “Do we have to log on to the server to access the administration and management features?” The answer is: “No, the ILINX Capture Server Manager can be utilized by any remote computer with the proper access.”
The reason why this comes up is because there is a lot of functionality in the ILINX Capture Server Manager. Not only from the technical administration perspective, but also from the business management side. For example, you have the ability to monitor the system status, review audit logs, configure security, monitor batches/documents and queues, and much more. All of this functionality can be individually enabled or disabled for specific users and groups depending on their needs.
The following steps show you how to install the Server Manager for remote access to the software’s administration features;
1. Run the Software Install and choose “ILINX Server Manager” from the install package…
2. Ensure that the workstation has port access to the ILINX Capture database open to Database. For example, if you are using SQL Server for your database the default port is 1433.
3. Provide the user/group with the proper administration access.
a. For a Line of Business Manager, it is common to just allow them access to monitor and manage the batches/documents in their queues
b. For Tech Support, it is common to allow access to the Audit logs and System Monitoring features
This remote administration and management functionality has proven to be a valuable tool for this software over the years. For more advanced remote admin/management tasks in ILINX Capture, feel free to leave a question in the comments and I will respond. If enough similar questions are asked, I will drop another post on the more advanced tasks.
