Firewall and Network Configuration

The direct connection via port 6080 is recommended for the most efficient operation of this application.  

To use this product from behind a corporate firewall using port 6080, the following is required:

The client software will attempt to initiate a direct socket connection to port 6080 on the Data Feed server. When a direct connection is unavailable, a lower quality connection will be established via port 80 using the HTTP protocol. This connection will work via the same proxy used to retrieve web pages for the browser.

With either connection (port 6080 or HTTP port 80), the firewall must not remove Java applet tags from incoming HTML. Some firewalls can be configured to strip Java applet tags from incoming pages. This product cannot work through such a firewall unless special dispensation is given to HTML from the source server (WEB.IRESS.CO.ZA).
