How to configure Preferences settings

  1. If necessary, double-click the Xerox EIP Connect component in a workflow to open the Xerox EIP Connect settings dialog box.
  2. Click the Preferences tab.
  3. In the Home Directory box, enter the path to the root directory where the server will create all temporary directories and files necessary for running the application.
    The service account for the service must have full control permission in this directory.
  4. In the Web Server Port box, enter the port on which the web application will be running.
  5. Optional: To use a secure connection between devices and the AutoStore server, select the Use SSL check box.
    1. In the Choose Certificate box, click to browse for an existing certificate or to create a new self-signed certificate.
    2. In the Certificate Password box, type the password for the certificate.
      If you created a self-signed certificate, the password you provided when creating the certificate is entered automatically.
  6. In the FTP Port box, enter the port on which the internal FTP service will use to communicate with the device.
    Note: When Use SSL is selected, the icon that appears on the device panel will be the default Xerox icon and not the AutoStore icon. To display the AutoStore icon in the device panel, you should change the SSL port number to 443.
  7. To configure logging and passive FTP options for the FTP server, click the Advanced button.
    1. To enable logging for the embedded ftp server, select the Enable Log check box, then in the Directory box enter the path to the directory where the logs should be created.
    2. In the Data Port Range box, enter the port range that will be used when receiving passive FTP connections from a device.   The default is ports 35000 through 49000.
      This must be configured on any device that you want to connect using passive FTP mode. By default devices are configured to use active FTP.
    3. Click OK to save changes to settings in the Advanced Server Settings dialog box.

    Select this check box To do this
