How to use the client without reverse proxy in front of the server ?

By default, the client is configured to be used without a reverse proxy in front of the server since the version 21.0.0

    [Server]
    data-ssl=False
    api-ssl=False
    port-data=8082
    port-api=8081
    rest-path=/

/!\ Be careful, do not provide the tcp port on the address bar of the client during the connection. If the tcp port is present like that :8081 then the application automatically reconfigure the client in reverse proxy mode.

How to use the client with a reverse proxy in front of the server ?

The client can be configured to be used with a reverse proxy. It's possible to change that by updating the File\settings.ini as follow:

    [Server]
    data-ssl=True
    api-ssl=True
    port-data=8080
    port-api=8080
    rest-path=/rest/

/!\ Be careful, do not provide the tcp port on the address bar of the client during the connection. If the tcp port is present like that :8081 then the application automatically reconfigure the client in reverse proxy mode.
