Configuring Components

Creating Metered Sessions

Before you can create a metered terminal session, the metering server must be added to the Administrative WebStation Settings tool list. If you used an automated installer, the metering server was automatically added to the list, and you can create a metered session now.

Use the Settings tool in the Administrative WebStation if you want to use HTTPS to view metering reports (the default setting is HTTP with an automatic installation), if you want to add an additional metering server to the list, or if you installed an archive file.

  1. Open the Administrative WebStation.

  2. In the Settings tool, click the Metering tab.

  3. Enter the Metering web server name. This is the full name or IP address of the server on which the metering component is installed.

  4. Enter the Metering web server port. The default is 80 for HTTP, 443 for HTTPS.

  5. Enter the Metering servlet context. This is the name of the directory in which you installed the metering component. The default is rwebmeter.

  6. Select the Use HTTPS check box to enable a secure connection using HTTPS.

  7. Click the Add to Table button.

To enable metering for Reflection version 12.0 or later Windows-based sessions, you must configure Reflection workstations to report to the metering server. You can either use the Reflection Customization Manager to create a customized Reflection installation that includes metering configuration information, or you can use Reflection's Group Policy settings to configure metering information after installation of Reflection. See the External Web SiteReflection System Administrator Guide for more information.

Follow these steps to create metered sessions in Reflection Administrator:

  1. In the Administrative WebStation table of contents, click Session Manager under Tools.

  2. Click the Add button or click a session name to edit it.

  3. On the Configure a Session page, click the Launch button.

  4. In the emulation window on the Administration menu, click Metering Setup.

  5. Select the Enable usage metering check box, and make sure the correct metering server is selected in the Metering web server box. The Require metering host check box is cleared by default so that connections are made even if the metering server is unavailable. Select this check box if you want connections to be made only when the metering server is available.

  6. Click OK, close the emulation window, and save your changes.
