Update Dashboard for Network Interface Binding Changes

For the Dashboard user interface, the system provides unrestricted binding to network interfaces through the perimeter server. To restrict access to the Dashboard user interface, you can adjust property settings so that only one network interface accesses the system.


On the server where the system resides, edit the perimeter.properties.in file as indicated in the following steps.

  1. Locate the localmode.interface parameter. The default setting is unrestricted.

    Unrestricted Setting (Default) localmode.interface=*

  2. To restrict access to the Dashboard, enter the network interface that you want to support.

    Restricted Setting localmode.interface=hostname1

  3. Stop Sterling B2B Integrator.
  4. Navigate to the <install_dir>.
  5. Navigate to the bin directory.
  6. Run setupfiles.sh (Linux) or setup.cmd (Windows).
  7. Start Sterling B2B Integrator.
