To secure a PC with encryption.
When you activate SECURE SOCKETS encryption on one PC, then only PCs that support this parameter (PCs that have CIMPLICITY 4.01-Service Pack 2 or higher installed) will be able to communicate with the secure PC. All data transfer to the secure PC will be encrypted.
You activate this parameter by creating a globals.ini file.
To activate SECURE_SOCKETS:
Open Microsoft Notepad (or another text editor).
Enter the following two lines.
Y= Yes, activate encryption
N= No, de-activate encryption
Save the file as Globals.ini.
Place Globals.ini in the GE Fanuc\Proficy CIMPLICITY\Data directory.
Restart CIMPLICITY for encryption to take effect.
Important: Only computers that have CIMPLICITY 4.01 service pack 2 or higher installed will be able to communicate with a SECURE_SOCKET encrypted PC.
