|Data Hub Settings||
Data Hub Profile: When you enable this option, Controller communicates with load generators via the Data Hub. For details, see LoadRunner Data Hub and Web Connector setup.
Transfer files over TCP: (Enabled by default) When this option is enabled, LoadRunner Professional's preferred file transfer method is via direct TCP connection for greater efficiency.
To transfer files over TCP, the Transfer all files to remote hosts before running scenario option must be enabled in Controller: Select Tools > Options, and in the Runtime File Storage tab, enable Transfer all files to remote hosts before running scenario.

Note: LoadRunner Professional supports basic and NTLM proxy authentication.
Indicates how to connect to the LoadRunner Agent.
|Enable SSL Support||
Enables a secure connection between Controller and load generator. This is enabled automatically when using a proxy.
|Enable IPv6 Support||Enables communication with load generator or MI Listener machines in IPv6 format. When enabled, Controller resolves the host name to IPv6.|
