Creating Metered Sessions

Before you can create a metered terminal session, the metering server must be added using the Administrative WebStation. If you used an automated installer, the metering server was automatically added to the list, and you can create a metered session now.

Follow these steps to create metered sessions:

To enable metering for Windows-based sessions, you must configure client workstations to report to the metering server. You can either use the Installation Customization Tool to create a customized terminal emulation installation that includes metering configuration information, or if you are using Reflection, you can use Reflection’s Group Policy settings to configure metering after installation.

Configuring Server Settings in the Administrative WebStation

Use the Settings option in the Administrative WebStation if you installed manually, or if you want to use HTTPS to view metering reports or add an additional metering server to the list.

  1. Open the Administrative WebStation.

  2. Click Settings, then click the Metering tab.

  3. Enter the Metering web server name. This is the full name or IP address of the server on which the metering component is installed.

  4. Enter the Metering web server port. The default is 80 for HTTP, 443 for HTTPS.

  5. Enter the Metering servlet context. This is the name of the directory in which you installed the metering component. The default is meter.

  6. Select the Use HTTPS check box to enable a secure connection using HTTPS.

  7. Click the Add to Table button.
