Serv-U Gateway provides defense in depth to Serv-U deployments.
It acts as a reverse proxy in demilitarized zone (DMZ) segments and prevents your Serv-U deployments from storing data in the DMZ, or opening connections from the DMZ to the internal network.
This type of architecture is essential to meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), managed file transfer, and other high-security requirements.
The Serv-U Gateway page in Server Details displays all configured gateways known to the Serv-U deployment. Serv-U periodically checks every configured gateway and displays a status message here.
The gateway address is the IP address on the Serv-U Gateway that Serv-U uses to communicate with Serv-U Gateway. This should almost always be a private IP address.
A status icon is displayed on the left of the gateway address. The Status column displays a brief message that indicates the current status of the gateway.
The icon in the Gateway Address column changes to reflect the current gateway status.
|The gateway is ready for connections. However, the gateway still needs listeners to receive connections.|
|Serv-U is checking the status of the gateway. Another status will appear in a few seconds.|
|The gateway is ready but the Serv-U installation is running close to the end of the trial period, or support period.|
|An error occurred. For more information about why it is not possible connect to the gateway, select the gateway entry, and select Properties.|
The Public IP Address column shows the IP address file transfer clients should connect to.
A private IP address is displayed in the Public IP Address column if a private IP address was explicitly configured in the gateway. This occurs if the gateway has no public IP addresses, which is common during trials and situations in which the gateway is placed behind network address translation (NAT).
The Description column displays any note that is added to the gateway configuration. It does not affect behavior.
Click Add, Edit, or Delete to manage gateway configurations.
Click Properties to view a detailed status about and add licenses to existing gateway configurations. This button only displays complete properties when Serv-U is connected to the gateway.
The large icon in the Status area and a status message indicate if the gateway is running, and whether or not it is running with a trial or commercial license.
The Available Public IP Addresses field contains a list of all the public IP addresses automatically detected on Serv-U Gateway. If a private address is configured in the Public IP Address field of the gateway, this field displays a message indicating that no public IP addresses are found on the gateway server. This is expected behavior.
The Install Information area shows the version and build date of the Serv-U Gateway software running on the gateway, the date Serv-U Gateway was installed or last updated, and, if applicable, the number of days left in the evaluation period.
Copy and paste your Serv-U Gateway Registration ID (not your Serv-U Registration ID) into this field, and click Save to apply a commercial license to your Serv-U Gateway software.
