You can assign a fixed public IP to the QlikView Server and then users can access QlikView reports without going through VPN. They will be asked for a username and password and it would be best practice for this to happen using the https protocol. Once the user opens the QlikView report the qvp protocol is already encrypted.
If that isn't what you were looking for, please reply more specifically what environment you are looking for.
Thanks so much for your reply. The server version is 9, SR3, installed on Windows server 2008.
Do you mean that I can choose "Identify user by machine name" when I assign license? We already have users inside domain and we "identify user by user name". It seems the two modes cannot be mixed.
If we can assign fixed public IP address in the QlikView Server, can users access the reports via browser, QlikView desktop, or both?
Where can I setup the Qlikview server to turn on the HTTPS protocol? I changed config.xml and restarted the QlikView service, but https is not on automatically?
