NIC Proxy Configuration Overview
You configure applications to communicate with network information collector (NIC) hosts. A NIC host can be local within an application, or external to the application. For Java applications, you also configure NIC proxies as part of an application.
For a number of SRC components, such as the SRC Volume-Tracking Application (SRC VTA) and the Dynamic Service Activator, you can configure the NIC proxy for the application from the SRC CLI. For other applications, such as the sample residential portal, you configure the NIC proxy in a property file. If you configure a NIC proxy from a property file, the fields are the same as the fields that appear at the CLI. When you develop and test SRC components that use a NIC, you can configure a NIC proxy stub to take the place of the NIC host.
