How To: Install Web Services

Before standard Khaos Control webservices can be installed on your Khaos Control application server, the following needs to happen:

  1. Install the current version of Microsoft IIS.
  2. Download and install any Microsoft updates.
  3. Install a security certificate (recommended for all secure connections, but optional so far as Khaos Control's technical requirements are concerned).
    Note: SSL can be a Self Signed SSL.
  4. A port will need to be opened on the firewall. This enables us to test and maintain the web service:
    • For a simple web browser interface "http://" connection, the default port is 80.
    • For the recommended secure "https://" connection, this is usually forwarded onto port is 443.
    Note: These are suggested, industry-standard values and should not be considered prescriptive.
  5. Your firewall/network router needs to be configured to allow us to connect through the appropriate port on the firewall (please contact Khaos Control Support for our IP addresses).
  6. You should provide us with a username and password that allows us both to access the Khaos Control application server, to install the web service initially, and also to maintain it going forward.
