Running CIUMon in relay mode

Running CIUMon in relay mode

In relay mode, CIUMon will send requests for data along to an upstream CIUMon, and pass back the responses. If there is a firewall between your users and the upstream CIUMon, you need only configure the firewall to allow the relay mode CIUMon to pass requests through it on a single UDP port, and this will allow all of your users to get data by communicating with the relay mode CIUMon. If your firewall rules require the upstream CIUMon to initiate all communications, you may use collector mode instead.

To run CIUMon in relay mode:

  1. Load a new relay configuration: on the File menu, click Load Configuration. Then, select "New Relay Configuration" and click OK.
  2. On the Options menu, click Settings.
  3. Click Relay mode.
  4. Type the IP address of the CIUMon that you want to connect to in the Computer name or IP address of upstream CIUMon box.

If you have changed the UDP port for the CIUMon you want to connect to, specify the port in the UDP port of upstream CIUMon box.

Once you have configured CIUMon to run in relay mode, save your configuration and make sure you can get data from your CIU.

Information-noshadow.png Note: In the display of the upstream CIUMon that is connected to the CIU, requests that come from the relay mode CIUMon will have the IP address of the relay mode CIUMon. However, the logon name will be the user who is using the data.

You do not need a DBDOC license for this computer if you are only going to use CIUMon in relay mode or collector mode. If you are starting CIUMon manually from the folder where DBDOC is installed, you may view relay mode configurations using CIUMon_Relay.exe instead of CIUMon.exe in order to avoid being prompted about your license.
