Configure RAS Web Administration Service

Before you begin, you may need to configure the RAS Web Administration Service as described below:

  1. In RAS Management Portal, click the "User" icon in the upper right-hand corner and choose Configure Management Portal.

  2. You will be asked to sign in again. Note that the RAS Web Administration Service must be running on the local server for this sign in to work. This is necessary to prevent users from remote servers to enter the RAS Web Administration Service configuration pages.

  3. Enter the username and password of a member of local administrators or domain administrators and click Sign in.

  4. The RAS Management Portal Configuration page opens.

  5. In the RAS Farm Address field, specify the RAS Farm address that this RAS Management Portal will manage. This is the RAS Connection Broker address installed in the Farm.

  6. In the Advanced Settings section, specify the following:

    • Certificate: A certificate to use for this connection. Click Upload to select a certificate.

    • Certificate Password: The certificate password.

    • Port: The port number on which RAS Management Portal listens for connections. The default port is 20443. This port number is chosen not to conflict with RAS Secure Gateway ports. You can change it to 443 (if possible), in which case the port number doesn't need to be included in the connection URL. You can also change it to any custom port. For example, the default "URL": "https://*:20443" can be changed to "URL": "http://*:20080".

    • Admin Session Timeout: The timeout after which the admin session will be disconnected.

    • Polling Interval: The interval at which RAS Management Portal will update the information displayed in it. You can increase this number up to 30 seconds if you have a large number of admins working at the same time and/or if you have a large number of hosts, sessions, etc.

  7. Click Save when done.
