Altova MobileTogether Server Advanced Edition

Some settings cannot be made in the WebUI (see previous sections), mainly because they do not need to be changed or should be changed only if you understand their effects. These settings are stored in a a configuration file named mobiletogetherserver.cfg, which is located by default in the application data folder (see below). You can edit the .cfg configuration file in a text editor. This section contains information about important settings that are safe for you to add/edit in the configuration file.

 

The location of the application data folder depends on the operating system and platform, and, by default, is as follows.

 

Linux

/var/opt/Altova/MobileTogetherServer

Mac

/var/Altova/MobileTogetherServer

Windows

C:\ProgramData\Altova\MobileTogetherServer

 

 

Size limit of data files transmitted to server

The server is set up by default to accept files that are up to 100 MB large. Larger files are rejected. If files larger than 100 MB are expected, you can increase the size limit by specifying the max_request_body_size setting in the Listen and ListenSSL sections of the configuration file. In the listing below, the file size has been increased so that the server can accept files of up to 200 MB.

 

[Listen]

host=0.0.0.0

port=8084

active=1

ssl=0

admin=0

max_request_body_size=209715200

 

[ListenSSL]

host=0.0.0.0

port=8084

active=1

ssl=1

admin=0

max_request_body_size=209715200

 

Note:The default value of max_request_body_size is 104857600 (100 MB)—even when the setting is not listed in the configuration file.

 

 

Server timeout

The default timeout of the server is 10 seconds. If this is too low, you can use the timeout setting to set a higher timeout in seconds. If the timeout setting is missing or is < 1, then the default timeout of 10 seconds is used.

 

[Listen]

host=0.0.0.0

port=8084

active=1

ssl=0

admin=0

max_request_body_size=209715200

timeout=300

 

[ListenSSL]

host=0.0.0.0

port=8084

active=1

ssl=1

admin=0

max_request_body_size=209715200

timeout=300

 

 

Syslog Server settings

These settings define the syslog server. Some of these settings can be specified via the Settings page of the Web UI. However, others can only be specified in the config file as listed below.

 

[Log]

syslog_enabled = 0 or 1

syslog_protocol = BSD_UDP or BSD_TCP or IETF_TCP or IETF_TLS

syslog_host = <IP address>

syslog_port = <usually 514 or 601 or 6514>

syslog_key = <key for TLS communication>

syslog_cert = <cert for TLS communication>

syslog_ca = This setting is not availabe in the UI. It is the Root CA, which is usually already installed on a PC. If you are unable to install it, specify it with this setting.

syslog_timeout = This setting is not availabe in the UI. The default is 5 seconds. Note that, if this setting's value is too high and Syslog server is not available, then writing the log to the MobileTogether Server log database could be jeopardized.
