Is the e-directiry agent 3.1 able to authenticate communications with clients?

L3 Networker

Hello,

We are planning to use the XML API. And i noticed that it requires an ssl communications between clients and the agent. I want to know if the agent is able to authenticate communication with client. And if not, is there any plan to implement this functionnality in future releases.

Regards.

There isn't currently any authentication within the API. However there is the ability within the agent to specify a list of hosts that are allowed to use the API. Entering the specific source IP addresses of hosts that will use the API will block any connections for other IP addresses.

Thank you for this answer. But it is important to us that this functionnality be present in future releases, can you tell me if there is a plan to implement it?
