Accessing QlikView Access Point outside the network


Hi Folks,

Can you pls let me know the steps to make QlikView Access Point accessible offsite(from any network).

I tried some steps as described in the link http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-4301, but was not successfull.

I've also learnt from some of the links that port 80 needs to be opened. I'm least knowledged about changing those kind of settings.

Can you guys help me to change the settings in detail!

Your help is very much appreciated.

Thanks in Advance!

Hi Surendra,

What use case are you working towards? remote Internal user access ? Extranet customers/partner access? Public access ?

It depends much more from your network topology (firewall, routers, DNS, etc) than QlikView Server

Hi Steve,

We are looking for access to remote internal users.

This is basically to enable them to access the Access Point when they are working from home and they will be accessing it with same network crednetials they have.

Hi Clever,

I've been suggested that we need to open some ports and I dont have any idea of how this can be done.

Thanks,

Surendra

From a strict IT policy point; is it not better to look at a VPN solution for users working remotely instead of publicly exposing resources?

I would agree with Hampus, many customers use VPN,  to provide secure access to QlikView remotely. This falls under the area of networking/security IT team - standard IT access provision for all external employee access. Specific ports are opened largely,  depending on the configuration of QlikView (https communications etc, forward and reverse proxy scenarios).  AccessPoint is access normally through port 80.

Re: Accessing QlikView Access Point outside the network

Basically you have to:

1) Create a sub-domain into your domain, example: qlikview.yourcompany.com (DNS administrator task)

2) Create some rules at your firewall routing requests from Internet to correct IP of your QlikView Server and enabling access to port 80 and 443 (if you use SSL). Maybe you´ll need NAT to do this. This step need your firewall/router administrator collaboration, because depends on your equipment.

Maybe your network administrator will require a DMZ to do step 2. Some reading about it: DMZ (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Release port 80 or another port, eg 81;

Set in the door QMC released;

Release the Firewall;

Descubre the external IP;

then another network test it: http: \ \ IP: PORT \ Qlikview

example: http: \ \ 197.162.10.237:81 \ Qlikview
