If you need to monitor servers that sit on the other side of a firewall, you need to set up your system properly, including installing and configure a dedicated Monitor-Over-Firewall machine, configure the LoadRunner agent to communicate with the MI Listener (which serves as a router between the LoadRunner agent and the Controller), and then define the server measurements that you want the Monitor-Over-Firewall machine to monitor.
To ensure a secure environment, you must also set up client-server authentication. LoadRunner provides a security solution based on an industry standard SSL/TLS library (OpenSSL), which includes both data encryption and authentication. Using this authentication method helps to protect your data from being exposed to third-parties, and to prevent your LoadRunner components from being used by unauthenticated users.
What do you want to do?
- Deploy LoadRunner over a firewall
- Configure the LoadRunner Agent
- Use a digital certificate with a firewall
- Set up client-server authentication
