HomeProxyInstallationWindows

2.1. Windows

After downloading the Proxy installer, which is a Windows Installer/MSI Package,double-clicking from Explorer should result in a dialog similar to the one shown below.

The next page is a simple license agreement...

You're then asked to select a location for the Proxy to be installed into...

You can then choose the location for the Proxy database(s).  This will hold a few database files (potentially large) which make up the Proxy's cache of the remote PureCM Server.

Finally, you'll be prompted for the main proxy parameters...

Proxy DNS Name

This should be a valid DNS name for the machine hosting the Proxy.

Proxy Port Number

Will normally be the default port number, 2010

Remote Server DNS Name

Should be either the DNS Name of the remote server the Proxy will be connecting to.

Remote Server Port

Will normally be the default port number, 2010

Worked Example

Following the example network diagram above,you would install the PureCM Proxy in both the London and New York Offices.  In the London Office the Proxy parameters would be :-

Proxy DNS Name: lon-proxy.us.com

Proxy Port Number: 2010

Remote Server DNS Name: purecm.us.com

Remote Server Port Number: 2010

and in the New York office the parameters would be :-

Proxy DNS Name: ny-proxy.us.com

Proxy Port Number: 2010

Remote Server DNS Name: purecm.us.com

Remote Server Port Number: 2010

The 'Proxy DNS Name' can also accept wildcards (primarily the '*' character for simple pattern matching).  The Proxy DNS Name becomes more important when the Proxy is used with multiple PureCM Servers (a different DNS Name/Alias must be used for each server).
