How to Configure A Synchronization Service
This article will describe how to setup your synchronization service in
Internet Information Services (IIS) Version 7 or later.
- Run the server tools (available here: www.tradepoint360.com/enterprise/servertools/)
- Choose "Install Synchronization" and select your path and database and
click the go button.
- Go to Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. This can be found in
your Administrative Tools section of your start menu or control panel
- Create a new website by right clicking on Sites and choosing "Add
- Enter a site name, choose an application pool (make sure that it is set to
be a .net 4 integrated pipeline pool), choose the physical location that you
pointed the server tools to and choose any ip and port as applicable (host
name is optional)
- Click ok.
- The synchronization service should now be available at the address and
port that you specified. You can test the link by going to the
/synchronize.asmx page. It will list the available methods.
- Synchronization requires that .NET 4 (Full not client) be installed.
- The port specified must be publically available from the internet. This
means that you will also have to open this port on your firewall(s) and test
that it works from an external browser.
- Host Name should only be used if you are sharing a public IP address with
another site and have a specific dns entry for the synchronization.
- To change the application pool .net integration type go to application
pools, select the pool, right click and choose basic settings, change .net
framework version to V4.0.30319
- Once you have successfully achieved #7, you can then point your remote
users at the public address including the /synchronize.asmx to enable
