About Management and Security Server
Using Management and Security Server, an administrator can create host sessions for Micro Focus products including Host Access for the Cloud, Reflection Desktop, InfoConnect, Rumba, and Reflection for the Web. Then, the administrator can centrally secure, manage, and monitor users’ access to those sessions.
Management and Security Server 12.8.5 released with Host Access for the Cloud 2.7.5.
See the MSS Release Notes for a list of new features, resolved issues, and known issues.
When you install or upgrade Management and Security Server, use the automated installer to install these components.
- Administrative Server
- Metering Server
- Configuration Utilities
- Security Proxy Server *
- Terminal ID Manager *
*The Security Proxy Server and Terminal ID Manager are optional Add-On Products that can be installed along with the other components. A license entitlement is required to enable and activate these products.
The manual installation files are no longer available. Check the Installation Variations if your system requirements differ from an automated installation.
Because Management and Security Server (MSS) provides the MSS Administrative Console to manage Host Access for the Cloud and Reflection for the Web, MSS is installed automatically as a chained installation when you install either of those products.
After you install, you can create sessions and set secure connections right away. Then you can augment security and add other features by activating and configuring your licensed Add-On Products.
About Add-On Products
Add-On Products, which require separate licenses, enhance Management and Security Server’s functionality with supplemental means of security. These products can be installed along with Management and Security Server, although additional configuration is required.
Add-on products include:
- Security Proxy Server
- Terminal ID Manager
- Automated Sign-On for Mainframe
