To Configure a Server to Forward Requests
- Open the dmskrnl.cfg file on the server that is receiving redirected client requests.
- Uncomment the line ;[Routing] by removing the semicolon (;) from the beginning of the line.
To forward requests directly to the routed server (that is, to forward a request to its final destination), use the following example:
This example tells the server that if it receives any requests bound for the server called INTSERVER1, to go ahead and forward it to INTSERVER1 through port 5800.
To forward requests to another gateway server (that is, to a server which will also forward the request) on its way to the routed server, use the following example:
This second example tells the server that if it receives any requests bound for the server called INTSERVER2, to forward it to the ProjectWise Gateway Service called PGS2 through port 5800. Your next step would be to open PGS2's dmskrnl.cfg file and configure its [Routing] section to forward requests to the appropriate server.
- Add additional lines for each routed server this server is forwarding requests to.
