Is there a way to prevent the QlikView web server to be accessed from other machines?

To fulfill some requirements from one of our customers, the QlikView web server should only be accessed locally (i.e. by using localhost). External access must use a reverse proxy located on the same machine. The reverse proxy is working fine, but the web server can also be accessed from other machines. Is there a way to configure the web server to disable answering to requests from another host than localhost?

Hi,

One way is to use a software firewall:

  • for example the public web proxy runs on port 80 . Allow connections on port 80 from outside
  • for example QlikView web server runs on port 8080. Block access to port 8080 from outside
  • additionally you might want to allow only AJAX client. Optionally block also port 4747 from outside.

Another way is to run IIS instead of QlikView web server . IIS has own IP filter rules, and you can configure it to listen only to local IP = 127.0.0.1
