If necessary, you can direct AcuServer to encrypt all data exchanged between AcuServer and a given requester (a client connection).
Encryption is enabled with two configuration variables: ENCRYPTION_SEED and AGS_SOCKET_ENCRYPT. Once encryption is turned on, it remains on until the program terminates and the connection with AcuServer is closed.
The configuration variable ENCRYPTION_SEED must be set in both the AcuServer configuration file and the runtime (client-side) configuration file. The value of ENCRYPTION_SEED is used to initialize the encryption facility. See Server Configuration Variables for more information.
The configuration variable AGS_SOCKET_ENCRYPT must be set to on in the runtime configuration file. If it is set within the program, it must be set to on before the application opens its first remote file. The default value of AGS_SOCKET_ENCRYPT is off.
