As an example, we will configure a Windows Processes connection in Royal TS and Royal TSX.
1. Configuring a Management Endpoint
With Royal Server, a new object type is introduced in Royal TS/X: the Management Endpoint. You can add a Management Endpoint using “Add” -> “More…” from the Ribbon or from the context menu.
It encapsulates all necessary configuration to talk to Royal Server and execute module commands. You specify a display name and a computer name (FQDN or IP address), together with a port. If you have configured Royal Server to use SSL, check the Use SSL checkbox. The Test button allows you to test the connection to the server.
If you have configured Royal Server to require authentication, enter a credential. This is the standard Royal TS drop down for specifying a credential.
2. Configuring a new connection
You are now ready to configure a new connection – for this example we take a Windows Processes view:
Now, you need to point the new Windows Processes connection to the previously created Management Endpoint. In the Configuration drop down, select the previously created Management Endpoint. By default, Direct Connect (No Management Endpoint ) is selected.
Click OK and connect to your created Windows Processes connection:
And now: cross platform using Royal TSX!
If Require Authentication is configured, make sure you specify an account that is in the “Royal Server Users” Windows Group.
Finally, define your Windows Processes connection – and you are good to go:
