Web Edition Services

Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition installs three services. The installer includes all three services by default, and you can install all three services on one system for initial testing. In production environments, these services are typically divided between two different systems.

The following two services are always installed together. In a typical configuration you install these to a server located in the DMZ.

  • Reflection for Secure IT Server

    A Secure Shell server that manages secure file transfers. You can use the server console to configure access to file locations on this server or on additional file servers. You can also configure customized file access for individual users or groups.

  • Reflection for Secure IT Web Transfer

    Authenticates Web Edition users and is the application server for the Reflection for Secure IT Transfer Client. The Transfer Client is a Java applet that runs in the end user's web browser. This drag-and-drop transfer utility enables users to transfer documents between their local system and the file locations you have made available to them.

The User Manager is typically installed on a different system, located within your local area network.

  • Reflection for Secure IT User Manager

    A web-based tool for configuring which users and groups have access.


Note: If you use smart cards, or other authentication systems that use X.509 certificates, you will also need to download and install Reflection PKI Services Manager. This add-on component is available free of charge with Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition. It is available on the Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition download page.
