    Additional Steps for Installing IP/MPLSView in a NAT Environment

    For IP/MPLSView running in a NAT environment, two additional ports (1101 and 21101) should be opened in the firewall between the server machine and client machine. See Required Ports to Open in Firewalls.

    In addition, use the following IP address options during the server installation. In this example, the IP address for server installation is the private NAT address and the IP address for the client installation is the public NAT address.

    1. To install IP/MPLSView in a NAT environment: from the Main Menu, select (B) IP Address. The IP Address menu is displayed.
      (B) IP Address
      IP/MPLSView Server IP Address Settings:
      1.) Webserver IP.......................: 
      2.) LDAP Server IP.....................: 
      3.) External Webserver IP (for NAT)....:
      4.) Mongo DB IP........................: 
      5.) Use Remote Database...............: YES
      Remote Database IP................: Private NAT IP
      Remote Database Port..............: 3333

    2. Select 1.) Webserver IP. Enter the private NAT IP address.
    3. Select 2.) LDAP Server IP. Enter the private NAT IP address.
    4. Select 3.) External Webserver IP (for NAT). Enter the public NAT IP address.

      For more information, see “Required Ports to Open in Firewalls” in Installing the IP/MPLSView Server, Client, Traffic Data Collector, and Rsync Package.

    5. Select 5.) Use Remote Database. Set this option to Yes. Enter the private NAT IP address and the protocol port.

    Also, do the following during the remote client installation on a Windows-based PC:

    1. Select the Use HTTP Tunneling for Firewall option during the installation, or after the client installation is complete, edit the ipmplsview.bat file. Add the FIREWALL keyword to the end of the Java command. For example:
      %JRE% -Xms%MEMORY% -Xmx%MEMORY% -XX:NewRatio=2 -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true
      -classpath %CLASSPATH% bbdsgn %SERVER% %SERVERPORT% %WEBSERVER% %WEBSERVERPORT%
      %LDAPSERVER% %LDAPPORT% mplsview FIREWALL

      The ipmplsview.bat file can typically be found on the PC’s desktop, or in the C:\Program Files\wandl\IP-MPLSViewX.X folder, where X.X is the version number.

    The following are additional things to note for using IP/MPLSView in a NAT environment:

    • During the client installation, use the public NAT IP address for IP address entries.
    • When launching the Web Start Client, use the public NAT IP address for the IP address.
    • In the Java-based GUI, select the Application > Options > JMS Access pane > Use HTTP Tunneling client option.
    • When opening the Traffic Collection Manager, Event Browser, or Threshold Editor window for the first time, a dialog box is displayed with configuration options. Select Use HTTP Tunneling. If this option is not displayed, you might need to delete any IP/MPLSView cached XML files from previous instances of these windows. On Windows-based PCs, the XML files might be in the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\wandl folder.
