Secure Receiver communication

Feb 16, 2015

To secure the communication between your server farm and Receiver, you can integrate your Receiver connections to the server farm with a range of security technologies, including:

  • A SOCKS proxy server or secure proxy server (also known as security proxy server, HTTPS proxy server, or TLS tunneling proxy server). You can use proxy servers to limit access to and from your network and to handle connections between Receiver and servers. Receiver supports SOCKS and secure proxy protocols.
  • Secure Gateway or SSL Relay solutions with Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols. TLS versions 1.0 through 1.2 are supported.
  • A firewall. Network firewalls can allow or block packets based on the destination address and port. If you are using Receiver through a network firewall that maps the server's internal network IP address to an external Internet address (that is, network address translation, or NAT), configure the external address.
