Editing Remote Locations

You can use the Remote Locations dialog box to add any browsers and mobile devices on a remote location to the set of applications that you can test.

    1. Click on the arrow to the right of Add Location to specify whether you want to add a remote location which is using the Silk Test Information Service, Silk Central, or the Mobile Center.
      Note: You can only configure one Silk Central as a remote location. If you have already configured the integration with Silk Central, Silk Central is listed in the remote locations list.
    2. Click Add Location. The Add Location dialog box appears.
    3. Type the URL of the remote location and the port through which Silk Test Workbench connects to the information service on the remote machine into the Host field. The default port is 22901.
    4. If you are trying to add a secure connection through HTTPS to Mobile Center, install the Mobile Center certificate. For additional information, see Installing the Certificate for an HTTPS Connection to Mobile Center.
    5. If you are trying to add connection to Mobile Center, specify your User name and Password for Mobile Center. For information on changing the Mobile Center password, see Changing the Mobile Center Password.
