Networking

Your XSF server needs to be accessible in your network through a browser. It should be able to communicate with the SQL Server.

Domain name

Your server needs a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN), not a partial name.

  • You will need to be able to make DNS changes for your organization's domain

  • The FQDN will have to resolve to your server IP from the Internet 

Port numbers

Always use the default ports unless it is restricted, either 80 for http or 443 for https, depending on if you enable SSL encryption. The use of SSL is necessary for a proper communication with Microsoft services.

For servers with multiple roles, allow traffic on multiple ports:

  • 443 (default) production

  • 1443 dev

  • 2443 test

Make sure your firewall allows traffic on these ports.


Installation folder

Create the installation folder: C:\Xpertdoc-SmartFlows .


SSL Certificate

The use of SSL encryption is required in almost every case. For SSL encryption to be enabled, you will need an SSL Certificate that matches the FQDN.

When you install multiple projects on one server you can also use a wildcard certificate where the CN is for example *.base.domain.com with *base.domain.com and base.domain.com as alternative names.

The recommended format is PFX, which is a Windows standard format.

  • The Certificate needs to be valid

  • You should have the PFX password available

Store the PFX file inside the installation folder (C:\Xpertdoc-SmartFlows).
