The AS2Sender component implements an AS2 / EDI-INT client.

Syntax

TibeAS2Sender

Remarks

The AS2Sender component may be used to send EDI or other messages over HTTP/S, using the AS2 protocol. It may also be used to verify synchronous or asynchronous server responses.

A typical AS2 transaction is as follows:

(1) The sender sends an EDI document to the receiver using HTTP or HTTPS. Typically the document will be signed and encrypted (particularly if SSL is not used). A signed receipt will also be requested.

(2) The receiver decrypts the message and verifies the signature.

(3) The receiver sends a signed receipt back to the client. The signature is over the hash of an MDN, which contains a hash of the received message.

When sending an EDI message, the client should specify, at a minimum, AS2From and AS2To, URL, and EDIData. The Post method should then be invoked.

To secure the EDI transmission, the message may be signed and/or encrypted by setting the appropriate certificates. By default, the component will apply message security if the appropriate certificates are specified. To sign the data, set SigningCert. To encrypt, set RecipientCerts. If the recipient uses different certificates for signing and encryption it will also be necessary to set ReceiptSignerCert.

SSL will also be used if the scheme in URL is "https". If your trading partner is using a self-signed certificate, it will be necessary to set SSLAcceptServerCert or trap the SSLServerAuthentication event to accept the certificate.

The message may also be compressed by setting CompressionFormat.

To request a receipt, or Message Disposition Notification (MDN), simply set the MDNTo property. The MDNOptions property may be used to customize the request. By default, the component will request a signed MDN over an SHA1 hash.

The component supports both synchronous and asynchronous MDN receipt delivery. By default, the component requests synchronous MDN receipt delivery, and the MDN will be returned in the HTTP reply. To request asynchronous MDN delivery, set the MDNDeliveryOption to the URL where MDN's are to be delivered.

The HTTP reply will automatically be processed by the component. If an MDN was requested, Post will validate the MDN and (if signed) establish non-repudiation of receipt. Any errors or warnings will cause the component to throw an exception.

In either case, after the EDI transaction is processed successfully, the MDNReceipt will be populated with the appropriate values.

Validating Asynchronous MDNs

The component may also be used to process and verify asynchronous MDNs. To do this, you should invoke ReadAsyncReceipt. This will read the receipt from the current HTTP context (or from MDNReceipt, if set manually), and allow you to determine your trading partner's identity and the message ID. You should then set ReceiptSignerCert and OriginalContentMIC, and finally invoke VerifyReceipt.

Remarks

Setting LogDirectory will instruct the component to log the details of each transmission to unique files in the specified directory. For each request processed, the component will log the complete text of the outgoing request and the incoming response.

The component will write multiple log file for each transmission, with separate extensions for each type of data:

Status (.log)Contains information on applied security options and pass/fail status of transmission
Request (.req)Contains the outgoing request, after security options have been applied
Payload (.dat)Contains log of unsecured payload prior to transmission
MDN Receipt (.mdn)For synchronous requests or asynchronous receipts verified with VerifyReceipt, contains MDN receipt.
Error (.err)This is only written in an error is encountered, containing the error.

One or more of these logs may be disabled by setting the LogOptions configuration setting.

LogDirectory supports several macros that can be used to specify a unique directory path. If the path specified does not already exist, the component will attempt to create the directory. The following macros are supported:

%MessageID%The MessageID of the AS2 transmission, after it is generated.
%AS2From%The AS2-From field in the transmission
%OriginalMessageID%In MDN Receipts, the MessageID of the transmission that the receipt is for. You can use this to pair asynchronous MDN receipt logs with their transmissions
%date:format%%Format% is a platform-specific date/time formatting string. For example:

The filenames will be chosen automatically by the component. Each filename will be the system time, in the format YYYY-MM-DD-HH-MM-SS-MMMM, with extensions "-2", "-3", used in case files of those names already exist. After each transaction is processed LogFile will contain the name of the files just written, minus the extension.

__property String MDNReceiptMICValue = { read=FMDNReceiptMICValue };

Default Value

""

Remarks

The Message Integrity Check(s) (one-way hash) of the original EDI message.

An MDN Receipt contains a MIC calculated over the EDI message that the receipt is in response to, to be matched on the sender side against a saved value for the original request to ensure that the integrity of the data that the receiver reports is preserved. When a signed receipt is requested, the MIC is be calculated using the algorithm used on the incoming message's signature, or SHA-1 if the incoming message is not signed.

The MIC will be base64 encoded and reported with the algorithm name as specified in RFC 3335; e.g., "w7AguNJEmhF/qIjJw6LnnA==, md5".

This property is read-only.

Data Type

String

MDNReceiptSigningProtocol Property (AS2Sender Component)

This property contains the MIME type of the signature used, if any (i.

Syntax

__property String MDNReceiptSigningProtocol = { read=FMDNReceiptSigningProtocol };

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property contains the MIME type of the signature used, if any (i.e., "application/pkcs7-signature"), to create this MDNReceipt. It will contain an empty string if the receipt is unsigned.

This property is read-only.

Data Type

String

MDNTo Property (AS2Sender Component)

Used to indicate that a message disposition notification is requested.

Syntax

__property String MDNTo = { read=FMDNTo, write=FSetMDNTo };

Default Value

""

Remarks

If this property is set, a Disposition-Notification-To header will be added to the request, and an MDN will be requested. The value may be an email address, URL, etc., and while its presence is used to determine whether or not an MDN is sent, the value itself will typically be ignored by the server.

By default, the component will request a PKCS#7 signature and synchronous delivery. You may set MDNDeliveryOption to request an asynchronous MDN, and you may set MDNOptions to request a different type of signature, or no signature at all.

Data Type

String

MessageId Property (AS2Sender Component)

The Id of the message.

Syntax

__property String MessageId = { read=FMessageId, write=FSetMessageId };

Default Value

""

Remarks

The Id format is as in RFC 2822: id-left@id-right .

A unique Id will automatically be generated on startup. Sending a message will reset id-left if the MessageId has been used in the previous message.

If you set MessageId to a string of the form "@(id-right)" a unique id-left will be generated. If you set MessageId to an empty string, a new MessageId will be generated with the same id-right.

After an MDNReceipt is returned or set, MessageId will contain the Original-Message-ID found in the MDN Receipt.

This property is not available at design time.

Data Type

String

OriginalContentMIC Property (AS2Sender Component)

The Message Integrity Check(s) (one-way hash) of the outgoing message.

Syntax

__property String OriginalContentMIC = { read=FOriginalContentMIC, write=FSetOriginalContentMIC };

Default Value

""

Remarks

A MIC will be calculated over the outgoing message using the same algorithm in the SignatureAlgorithm configuration used to sign the message. The property will be set when Post (in AS3, Send) is invoked, and the MIC will automatically be checked against the Original-Content-MIC in the MDN for synchronous MDNs.

The format is in RFC 3335, i.e. "w7AguNJEmhF/qIjJw6LnnA==, md5", with a newline at the end.

If you are requesting an asynchronous MDN, you must save this value externally so that it can be loaded when the MDN is received (you may also use AsyncMDNInfoDir).

Data Type

String

ProxyAuthScheme Property (AS2Sender Component)

This property is used to tell the component which type of authorization to perform when connecting to the proxy.

Syntax

__property TibeAS2SenderProxyAuthSchemes ProxyAuthScheme = { read=FProxyAuthScheme, write=FSetProxyAuthScheme };
enum TibeAS2SenderProxyAuthSchemes { authBasic=0, authDigest=1, authProprietary=2, authNone=3, authNtlm=4, authNegotiate=5 };

Default Value

authBasic

Remarks

This property is used to tell the component which type of authorization to perform when connecting to the proxy. This is used only when the ProxyUser and ProxyPassword properties are set.

__property DynamicArray<Byte> RolloverSigningCertStoreB = { read=FRolloverSigningCertStoreB, write=FSetRolloverSigningCertStoreB };

Default Value

"MY"

Remarks

This is the name of the certificate store for the client certificate.

The RolloverSigningCertStoreType property denotes the type of the certificate store specified by RolloverSigningCertStore. If the store is password protected, specify the password in RolloverSigningCertStorePassword.

RolloverSigningCertStore is used in conjunction with the RolloverSigningCertSubject property to specify client certificates. If RolloverSigningCertStore has a value, and RolloverSigningCertSubject or RolloverSigningCertEncoded is set, a search for a certificate is initiated. Please see the RolloverSigningCertSubject property for details.

Designations of certificate stores are platform dependent.

The following designations are the most common User and Machine certificate stores in Windows:

MYA certificate store holding personal certificates with their associated private keys.
CACertifying authority certificates.
ROOTRoot certificates.

When the certificate store type is PFXFile, this property must be set to the name of the file. When the type is PFXBlob, the property must be set to the binary contents of a PFX file (i.e., PKCS#12 certificate store).

This is the certificate (PEM/Base64 encoded). This property is used to assign a specific certificate. The SSLServerCertStore and SSLServerCertSubject properties also may be used to specify a certificate.

When SSLServerCertEncoded is set, a search is initiated in the current SSLServerCertStore for the private key of the certificate. If the key is found, SSLServerCertSubject is updated to reflect the full subject of the selected certificate; otherwise, SSLServerCertSubject is set to an empty string.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

Data Type

Byte Array

Subject Property (AS2Sender Component)

The subject of the message.

Syntax

__property String Subject = { read=FSubject, write=FSetSubject };

Default Value

""

Remarks

The optional human-readable subject of the message. Some AS2 partners will use this field to send additional information about the transmission at the transport layer.

Data Type

String

Timeout Property (AS2Sender Component)

A timeout for the component.

Syntax

__property int Timeout = { read=FTimeout, write=FSetTimeout };

Default Value

60

Remarks

If the Timeout property is set to 0, all operations will run uninterrupted until successful completion or an error condition is encountered.

If Timeout is set to a positive value, the component will wait for the operation to complete before returning control.

The component will use DoEvents to enter an efficient wait loop during any potential waiting period, making sure that all system events are processed immediately as they arrive. This ensures that the host application does not "freeze" and remains responsive.

If Timeout expires, and the operation is not yet complete, the component raises an exception.

Please note that by default, all timeouts are inactivity timeouts, i.e. the timeout period is extended by Timeout seconds when any amount of data is successfully sent or received.

The default value for the Timeout property is 60 seconds.

Data Type

Integer

URL Property (AS2Sender Component)

The URL to which the request is made.

Syntax

__property String URL = { read=FURL, write=FSetURL };

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property specifies the URL to which the request is made. SSL will be used if and only if the URL scheme is "https".

Data Type

String

UseOAEP Property (AS2Sender Component)

This property specifies whether or not to use Optimal Asymmetric Encryption Padding (OAEP).

Syntax

__property bool UseOAEP = { read=FUseOAEP, write=FSetUseOAEP };

Default Value

false

Remarks

This property specifies whether or not to use Optimal Asymmetric Encryption Padding (OAEP). By default, this value is False and the component will use PKCS1.

To specify nondefault OAEP options, please see OAEPRSAHashAlgorithm, OAEPMGF1HashAlgorithm, and OAEPParams

Data Type

Boolean

UsePSS Property (AS2Sender Component)

This property specifies whether or not RSA-PSS will be used during signing and verification.

Syntax

__property bool UsePSS = { read=FUsePSS, write=FSetUsePSS };

Default Value

false

Remarks

This property specifies whether or not RSA-PSS will be used when signing and verifying messages. The default value is False.

Data Type

Boolean

UserAgent Property (AS2Sender Component)

Information about the user agent.

Syntax

__property String UserAgent = { read=FUserAgent, write=FSetUserAgent };

Default Value

"IPWorks EDI AS2Sender Component - www.nsoftware.com"

Remarks

You may override the default with the name and version of your software.

Data Type

String

Config Method (AS2Sender Component)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

String __fastcall Config(String ConfigurationString);

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every component. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the component.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

DoEvents Method (AS2Sender Component)

Processes events from the internal message queue.

Syntax

void __fastcall DoEvents();

Remarks

When DoEvents is called, the component processes any available events. If no events are available, it waits for a preset period of time, and then returns.

Interrupt Method (AS2Sender Component)

Interrupt the current method.

Syntax

void __fastcall Interrupt();

Remarks

If there is no method in progress, Interrupt simply returns, doing nothing.

Post Method (AS2Sender Component)

Post data to the AS2 server, and check the receipt.

Syntax

void __fastcall Post();

Remarks

Post data to the server. The reply will also be checked, and if a synchronous MDN was requested (i.e., MDNTo is not empty), it will be validated. After the method finishes, the MDNReceipt, ReceiptSigningProtocol, and ReceiptSignerCert properties will be populated with the appropriate values.

The method operates synchronously, and will throw an exception if any errors or warnings occur. Errors might include a failure to decrypt or authenticate the receipt, the absence of an MDN when one was requested, TCP/IP errors, or any errors reported by the server in the MDN. Warnings might include the return of an unsigned receipt when a signed receipt was requested, or other warnings reported by the server in the MDN.

If an exception is thrown the error code will correspond to the severity of the warning or error, allowing client software to determine whether or not to accept the reply. If multiple errors occur, the exception will return a special error code, and the error message will contain a line for each error's code and description; i.e. "423: Failed to authenticate sender". If the error(s) is/are not fatal processing will not be interrupted, and the relevant properties will be populated as normal.

ReadAsyncReceipt Method (AS2Sender Component)

Reads an asynchronous MDN receipt from the current HTTP session.

Syntax

void __fastcall ReadAsyncReceipt();

Remarks

ReadAsyncReceipt is used to read an asynchronous MDN receipt from the . The component will fetch the request stream from the HTTP session. MDNReceipt will be populated with a new instance of MDNReceipt.

Reset Method (AS2Sender Component)

Resets the state of the control.

Syntax

void __fastcall Reset();

Remarks

Resets all HTTP headers as well as EDIData, etc. After invoking this method the component may be reused as if it were newly created.

Restart Method (AS2Sender Component)

Restart sending of the file specified by the Etag property.

Syntax

void __fastcall Restart();

Remarks

This method should be called when using the AS2 restart functionality. When called, the component will process the file and cache the processed contents to the RestartDirectory. Before sending, the Etag property will be populated with a unique Etag which identifies the processed file.

If sending is interrupted or fails, this method should be called to restart sending of the previously processed file starting where the interruption occurred. In order to restart from the last transfer, the Etag must be populated with the value from the last connection.

NOTE: When using restart functionality, the data is completely processed to the RestartDirectory before sending begins.

SendCEMRequest Method (AS2Sender Component)

Sends a Certificate Exchange Messaging (CEM) request.

Syntax

void __fastcall SendCEMRequest(String RequestId);

Remarks

This method send the Certificate Exchange Messaging (CEM) request with the details specified in CEMDetails.

Certificate Exchange Messaging (CEM) allows for new certificates to be sent to a recipient and be automatically updated. This removes the requirement to manually send new certificates to a partner via email or other means. When both sides support this functionality updating certificates can be accomplished in a short period of time.

To prepare a CEM request populate the CEMDetails collection with at least one certificate. For instance if the certificate of the application will be updated soon, the CEMDetails may be populated with the corresponding public certificate to be sent to your partner. CEMDetails should only contain public certificates.

Set CEMRespondByDate to the date by which you expect a response. The format is of the XML standard dateTime type expressed in local time with UTC offset. For instance: "2005-08-31T00:21:00-05:00".

Optionally set CEMCertId to a friendly identifier that the partner may use to help understand the purpose of the new certificate. For instance "New.Encryption.Cert.2014".

Set CEMResponseURL to the publicly accessible URL where the CEM response will be sent after the partner processes it.

The RequestId parameter uniquely identifies this CEM request and must be saved for use later when receiving the CEM response.

When calling this method the applicable CEMDetails properties are:

SendCEMResponse Method (AS2Sender Component)

Sends a Certificate Exchange Messaging (CEM) response.

Syntax

void __fastcall SendCEMResponse(String RequestId);

Remarks

This method send the Certificate Exchange Messaging (CEM) request with the details specified in CEMDetails.

A CEM request must have previously been received using AS2Receiver. To send the CEM response, populate CEMDetails with the certificate information and decide whether to accept or reject the request. The following properties may be set to specify the certificate:

Alternatively, the certificate information may be set:

After specifying the certificate information choose whether to accept or reject the request. To accept the request set CEMAccepted to True. To reject the request set CEMAccepted to False and specify a reason in CEMRejectionReason.

Call SendCEMResponse and pass the CEM request Id that was retrieved from the request.

SetRequestHeader Method (AS2Sender Component)

Allows the user to set or add arbitrary HTTP request headers.

Syntax

void __fastcall SetRequestHeader(String HeaderName, String HeaderValue);

Remarks

HeaderName should contain the header name, and HeaderValue should contain its value. Use this to set headers such as To, Date, etc. Note that a default value for Date will automatically be determined and this method may be used to override the default.

SetRequestHeader may be used to set any header except for the following: AS2-To, AS2-From, AS2-Version, Subject, Message-Id, Disposition-Notification-To, Disposition-Notification-Options, Receipt-Delivery-Option, Host, Content-Length.

SetTPInfo Method (AS2Sender Component)

A convenient way to set AS2 communication parameters using XML strings.

Syntax

void __fastcall SetTPInfo(String Profile);

Remarks

SetTPInfo offers a convenient way to set AS2 communication parameters using XML strings. The format of the XML is the same as provided by the method GetTPInfo of AS2ProfileMgr.

The "self" information should always precede the partner information as shown below. AS2Sender as2sender = new AS2Sender(); AS2Profilemgr mgr = new AS2Profilemgr(); mgr.DataDir = @"C:\as2data"; as2sender.SetTPInfo(mgr.GetTPInfo("self")); as2sender.SetTPInfo(mgr.GetTPInfo("partnerOrg")); as2sender.EDIFile = @"C:\as2Data.x12"; as2sender.Post();

VerifyReceipt Method (AS2Sender Component)

Verifies an asynchronous MDN receipt.

Syntax

void __fastcall VerifyReceipt();

Remarks

VerifyReceipt verifies the receipt in MDNReceipt against OriginalContentMIC, MessageId and the preferences specified in MDNOptions. The method operates similarly to Post: After the method finishes, the MDNReceipt, ReceiptSigningProtocol, and ReceiptSignerCert properties will be populated with the appropriate values.

The method operates synchronously, and will throw an exception if any errors or warnings occur. Errors might include a failure to decrypt or authenticate the receipt, the absence of an MDN when one was requested, TCP/IP errors, or any errors reported by the server in the MDN. Warnings might include the return of an unsigned receipt when a signed receipt was requested, or other warnings reported by the server in the MDN.

If an exception is thrown the error code will correspond to the severity of the warning or error, allowing client software to determine whether or not to accept the reply. If multiple errors occur, the exception will return a special error code, and the error message will contain a line for each error's code and description; i.e. "423: Failed to authenticate sender". If the error(s) is/are not fatal processing will not be interrupted, and the relevant properties will be populated as normal.

This method should be used to verify receipts received asynchronously; i.e., not in the HTTP reply to a POST. When posting, asynchronous MDN delivery may be requested by setting MDNDeliveryOption.

Connected Event (AS2Sender Component)

This event is fired immediately after a connection completes (or fails).

Syntax

typedef struct {
  int StatusCode;
  String Description;
} TibeAS2SenderConnectedEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderConnectedEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderConnectedEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderConnectedEvent OnConnected = { read=FOnConnected, write=FOnConnected };

Remarks

If the connection is made normally, StatusCode is 0 and Description is "OK".

If the connection fails, StatusCode has the error code returned by the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)/IP stack. Description contains a description of this code. The value of StatusCode is equal to the value of the error.

Please refer to the Error Codes section for more information.

Disconnected Event (AS2Sender Component)

This event is fired when a connection is closed.

Syntax

typedef struct {
  int StatusCode;
  String Description;
} TibeAS2SenderDisconnectedEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderDisconnectedEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderDisconnectedEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderDisconnectedEvent OnDisconnected = { read=FOnDisconnected, write=FOnDisconnected };

Remarks

If the connection is broken normally, StatusCode is 0 and Description is "OK".

If the connection is broken for any other reason, StatusCode has the error code returned by the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP/IP) subsystem. Description contains a description of this code. The value of StatusCode is equal to the value of the TCP/IP error.

Please refer to the Error Codes section for more information.

EndTransfer Event (AS2Sender Component)

This event is fired when a document finishes transferring.

Syntax

typedef struct {
  int Direction;
} TibeAS2SenderEndTransferEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderEndTransferEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderEndTransferEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderEndTransferEvent OnEndTransfer = { read=FOnEndTransfer, write=FOnEndTransfer };

Remarks

The EndTransfer event is fired first when the client finishes sending data to the server (in a POST or PUT request) and then when the document text finishes transferring from the server to the local host.

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

Error Event (AS2Sender Component)

Information about errors during data delivery.

Syntax

typedef struct {
  int ErrorCode;
  String Description;
} TibeAS2SenderErrorEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderErrorEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderErrorEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderErrorEvent OnError = { read=FOnError, write=FOnError };

Remarks

The Error event is fired in case of exceptional conditions during message processing. Normally the component raises an exception.

The ErrorCode parameter contains an error code, and the Description parameter contains a textual description of the error. For a list of valid error codes and their descriptions, please refer to the Error Codes section.

Header Event (AS2Sender Component)

This event is fired every time a header line comes in.

Syntax

typedef struct {
  String Field;
  String Value;
} TibeAS2SenderHeaderEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderHeaderEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderHeaderEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderHeaderEvent OnHeader = { read=FOnHeader, write=FOnHeader };

Remarks

The Field parameter contains the name of the HTTP header (same case as it is delivered). The Value parameter contains the header contents.

If the header line being retrieved is a continuation header line, then the Field parameter contains an empty string.

Note that only the top-level headers will be returned through this event, and that they are available through the ReplyHeaders property.

The Field parameter contains the name of the HTTP header (which is the same as it is delivered). The Value parameter contains the header contents.

If the header line being retrieved is a continuation header line, then the Field parameter contains "" (empty string).

Log Event (AS2Sender Component)

Fired with log information while processing a message.

Syntax

typedef struct {
  String LogType;
  String LogMessage;
  DynamicArray<Byte> LogMessageB;
} TibeAS2SenderLogEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderLogEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderLogEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderLogEvent OnLog = { read=FOnLog, write=FOnLog };

Remarks

This event fires once for each log message generated by the component. The verbosity is controlled by the LogLevel setting.

Log messages available through this event correspond to log files written to LogDirectory. This event provides a way to obtain log messages without relying on files on disk. This event fires regardless of the value of LogDirectory (i.e. when LogDirectory is empty the event will still fire).

The LogMessage event parameter holds the raw log data.

The LogType event parameter indicates the type of log. Possible values are:

"LOG" Information about the status of the process.
"ERR" An error was encountered.
"DAT" The EDI payload.
"REQ" The raw request
"MDN" The MDN response.
"DEBUG" Debug information.
"DAT.INPUT" Debug information when processing payload. Only applicable when LogDebug is True.
"DAT.ENCRYPT" Debug information when processing payload. Only applicable when LogDebug is True.
"DAT.COMPRESS" Debug information when processing payload. Only applicable when LogDebug is True.
"DAT.SIGN" Debug information when processing payload. Only applicable when LogDebug is True.
"DAT.DECRYPT" Debug information when processing payload. Only applicable when LogDebug is True.
"DAT.DECOMPRESS" Debug information when processing payload. Only applicable when LogDebug is True.
"DAT.VERIFY" Debug information when processing payload. Only applicable when LogDebug is True.
"DAT.DEBUG" Debug information when processing payload. Only applicable when LogDebug is True.

SetCookie Event (AS2Sender Component)

This event is fired for every cookie set by the server.

Syntax

typedef struct {
  String Name;
  String Value;
  String Expires;
  String Domain;
  String Path;
  bool Secure;
} TibeAS2SenderSetCookieEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderSetCookieEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderSetCookieEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderSetCookieEvent OnSetCookie = { read=FOnSetCookie, write=FOnSetCookie };

Remarks

The SetCookie event is fired for every Set-Cookie: header received from the HTTP server.

The Name parameter contains the name of the cookie, with the corresponding value supplied in the Value parameter.

The Expires parameter contains an expiration time for the cookie (if provided by the server). The time format used is "Weekday, DD-Mon-YY HH:MM:SS GMT". If the server does not provide an expiration time, the Expires parameter will be an empty string. In this case, the convention is to drop the cookie at the end of the session.

The Domain parameter contains a domain name to limit the cookie to (if provided by the server). If the server does not provide a domain name, the Domain parameter will be an empty string. The convention in this case is to use the server specified in the URL (URLServer) as the cookie domain.

The Path parameter contains a path name to limit the cookie to (if provided by the server). If the server does not provide a cookie path, the Path parameter will be an empty string. The convention in this case is to use the path specified in the URL (URLPath) as the cookie path.

The Secure parameter specifies whether the cookie is secure. If the value of this parameter is True, the cookie value must be submitted only through a secure (HTTPS) connection.

SSLServerAuthentication Event (AS2Sender Component)

Fired after the server presents its certificate to the client.

Syntax

typedef struct {
  String CertEncoded;
  DynamicArray<Byte> CertEncodedB;
  String CertSubject;
  String CertIssuer;
  String Status;
  bool Accept;
} TibeAS2SenderSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderSSLServerAuthenticationEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderSSLServerAuthenticationEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderSSLServerAuthenticationEvent OnSSLServerAuthentication = { read=FOnSSLServerAuthentication, write=FOnSSLServerAuthentication };

Remarks

This event is where the client can decide whether to continue with the connection process or not. The Accept parameter is a recommendation on whether to continue or close the connection. This is just a suggestion: application software must use its own logic to determine whether to continue or not.

When Accept is False, Status shows why the verification failed (otherwise, Status contains the string "OK").

SSLStatus Event (AS2Sender Component)

Shows the progress of the secure connection.

Syntax

typedef struct {
  String Message;
} TibeAS2SenderSSLStatusEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderSSLStatusEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderSSLStatusEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderSSLStatusEvent OnSSLStatus = { read=FOnSSLStatus, write=FOnSSLStatus };

Remarks

The event is fired for informational and logging purposes only. This event tracks the progress of the connection.

StartTransfer Event (AS2Sender Component)

This event is fired when a document starts transferring (after the headers).

Syntax

typedef struct {
  int Direction;
} TibeAS2SenderStartTransferEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderStartTransferEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderStartTransferEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderStartTransferEvent OnStartTransfer = { read=FOnStartTransfer, write=FOnStartTransfer };

Remarks

The StartTransfer event is fired first when the client starts sending data to the server (in a POST or PUT request) and then when the document text starts transferring from the server to the local host.

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

Transfer Event (AS2Sender Component)

This event is fired while a document transfers (delivers document).

Syntax

typedef struct {
  int Direction;
  __int64 BytesTransferred;
  int PercentDone;
  String Text;
  DynamicArray<Byte> TextB;
} TibeAS2SenderTransferEventParams;
typedef void __fastcall (__closure *TibeAS2SenderTransferEvent)(System::TObject* Sender, TibeAS2SenderTransferEventParams *e);
__property TibeAS2SenderTransferEvent OnTransfer = { read=FOnTransfer, write=FOnTransfer };

Remarks

The Text parameter contains the portion of the document text being received. It is empty if data are being posted to the server.

The BytesTransferred parameter contains the number of bytes transferred in this Direction since the beginning of the document text (excluding HTTP response headers).

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

The PercentDone parameter shows the progress of the transfer in the corresponding direction. If PercentDone can not be calculated the value will be -1.

Note: Events are not re-entrant. Performing time-consuming operations within this event will prevent it from firing again in a timely manner and may affect overall performance.

Config Settings (AS2Sender Component)

The component accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

AS2Sender Config Settings

AllowMDNWarnings:   Whether to fail on MDN warnings.

When processing MDNs this setting determines if the component throws an exception when a MDN warning is processed. By default this value is False and MDN warnings other than duplicate files warnings will result in an exception. If set to True all MDN warnings will be allowed and processing will continue as normal. Check MDNDisposition to process the warning manually in this case.

Authorization:   The Authorization string to be sent to the server.

If the Authorization setting contains a non-empty string, an Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys Authorization information to the server.

This setting is provided so that the component can be extended with other security schemes in addition to the authorization schemes already implemented by the component.

The AuthScheme; setting defines the authentication scheme used. In the case of HTTP Basic Authentication (default), every time User and Password are set, they are Base64 encoded, and the result is put in the Authorization setting in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

AuthScheme:   The authorization scheme to be used when server authorization is to be performed.

Use the AuthScheme property to tell the component which type of authorization to perform when the User and Password properties are set. Possible values are:

0 (default)Basic
1Digest
2Proprietary
3None
4NTLM
5Negotiate
6OAuth
By default, AuthScheme is Basic (0), and if the User and Password configuration settings are set, the component will attempt basic authentication. If AuthScheme is set to Digest (1), digest authentication will be attempted instead.

For security reasons, setting this value will clear the values of User and Password.

EncodeToTempDir:   Whether to use temporary files when creating messages.

This setting determines if temporary files are used when creating messages. By default this value is not set and messages are created in memory before posting. When working with very large files this can cause substantial memory usage. To avoid memory overhead when working with large files set this to a relative or absolute path to a directory on disk. When Post is called the component will create a file in the specified directory during processing.

IgnoreLoggingErrors:   Whether to ignore errors that occur when writing to the log.

When this setting is enabled (default False), any errors that occur while writing to log files will be ignored, and no exception will be thrown. Note that this may cause logs to be incomplete or missing without any indication that an issue occurred.

IncludeHeaders:   Whether headers are included when posting to a file.

This setting determines if headers are included in the file when using PostToFile. By default this value is true. When set to False headers are not included in the content written to the file. When set to False this also allows data to be streamed directly to the file specified by PostToFile without any substantial memory overhead or the use of EncodeToTempDir. After posting to a file check the MessageHeaders to obtain the headers. This setting should only be used when PostToFile is set.

LogDebug:   Whether to log debug data.

This setting specifies whether to log debug data. When set to True the component will create additional files in the LogDirectory. The default value is False.

When sending, files with extensions ".input", ".sign", ".compress", and ".encrypt" may be created. When receiving, files with extensions ".input", ".verify", ".decompress", and ".decrypt" may be created.

LogFilename:   The base name of the log file.

If set, this will be used as for the filename of the log file.

Note that only the base name should be specified as the component will append the appropriate file extension.

LogOptions:   The information to be written to log files.

When LogDirectory is set, several pieces of information are written to log files in the specified directory. Set LogOptions to one or more of the following values to control what information is written to file. When specifying multiple values, include them in the same string (i.e. "LogOptions=Status, Response, Payload"):

StatusContains information on applied security options and pass/fail status of transmission
RequestContains outgoing transmission, with applied security options
PayloadContains log of unsecured payload prior to transmission
ResponseFor synchronous requests or asynchronous receipts verified with VerifyReceipt, contains MDN receipt, if sent. For asynchronous requests, contains server acknowledgement.
ErrorsA separate file with a .err extension is written when an error is encountered.
AllAll of the above

MDNDisposition:   Returns the Disposition header of the MDN.

This setting returns the Disposition header value from the MDN.

MessageHeaders:   Returns the headers of the message.

This setting returns the headers of the generated message when IncludeHeaders is False and PostToFile is set. It should not be used in any other cases.

NormalizeMIC:   Whether to normalize line endings before calculating the MIC.

This setting determines whether to normalize line endings before signature verification.

In most cases the signature is verified by calculating a Message Integrity Check (MIC) over the exact data that is received. In some cases other software such as Mendelson AS2 may calculate signatures over a version of the data with normalized line endings. During processing attempts to verify a signature that was created in this manner may lead to one of the following errors:

  • Unable to verify content integrity: Message digest mismatch in signature.
  • The receipt signature could not be verified: Message digest mismatch in signature.

If one of the errors above is encountered and the received data is expected to be otherwise correct setting this setting to True may resolve the issue by normalizing line endings before verifying the signature.

Note: This should only be set to True if there is a specific reason to do so.

OAEPMGF1HashAlgorithm:   The MGF1 hash algorithm used when encrypting a key.

When UseOAEP is True, this algorithm specifies the MGF1 hash algorithm used for the encryption key by RSA OAEP. Possible values are:

  • "SHA1"
  • "SHA224"
  • "SHA256" (default)
  • "SHA384"
  • "SHA512"

Note: An empty string value indicates that the algorithm specified by OAEPRSAHashAlgorithm is used as the RSA hash algorithm as well.

OAEPParams:   The hex encoded OAEP parameters to be used when encrypting a key.

This setting is optional and should only be specified if OAEP parameters need to be explicitly set. The value specified should be a hex string. By default this setting is unspecified.

OAEPRSAHashAlgorithm:   The RSA hash algorithm used when encrypting a key.

When UseOAEP is True, this algorithm specifies the RSA hash algorithm used for the encryption key. This may differ from the hash algorithm used to sign the AS4 message content. Possible values are:

  • "SHA1"
  • "SHA224"
  • "SHA256" (default)
  • "SHA384"
  • "SHA512"
Password:   A password if authentication is to be used.

If AuthScheme is set to Basic, the User and Password are Base64 encoded and the result is put in the Authorization configuration setting in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

If AuthScheme is set to Digest, the User and Password properties are used to respond to the HTTP Digest Authentication challenge from the server.

The User and Password properties must be set only after the URL property is set. When the URL property is set, for security reasons, User and Password are immediately cleared.

PostToFile:   Creates the message on disk.

This setting allows for the message to be created on disk without actually being sent. This is useful in certain situations to prepare the message where it is sent by a different transport mechanism at a later time. This should be set to a relative or absolute file path including the filename. When this is set the component will immediately start processing the message and writing to the specified file.

RequiredSignatureAlgorithms:   Specifies a list of acceptable signature algorithms.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms used in messages verified by the component. By default the setting is empty and any signature algorithm is supported. To restrict the algorithms to one or more values set this setting to a comma separated list. For instance sha1,sha256.

User:   A user name if authentication is to be used.

If AuthScheme is set to Basic, the User and Password are Base64 encoded and the result is put in the Authorization configuration setting in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

If AuthScheme is set to Digest, the User and Password properties are used to respond to the HTTP Digest Authentication challenge from the server.

The User and Password properties must be set only after the URL property is set. When the URL property is set, for security reasons, User and Password are immediately cleared.

HTTP Config Settings

AcceptEncoding:   Used to tell the server which types of content encodings the client supports.

When AllowHTTPCompression is True, the component adds an Accept-Encoding header to the request being sent to the server. By default, this header's value is "gzip, deflate". This configuration setting allows you to change the value of the Accept-Encoding header. Note: The component only supports gzip and deflate decompression algorithms.

AllowHTTPCompression:   This property enables HTTP compression for receiving data.

This configuration setting enables HTTP compression for receiving data. When set to True (default), the component will accept compressed data. It then will uncompress the data it has received. The component will handle data compressed by both gzip and deflate compression algorithms.

When True, the component adds an Accept-Encoding header to the outgoing request. The value for this header can be controlled by the AcceptEncoding configuration setting. The default value for this header is "gzip, deflate".

The default value is True.

AllowHTTPFallback:   Whether HTTP/2 connections are permitted to fallback to HTTP/1.1.

This configuration setting controls whether HTTP/2 connections are permitted to fall back to HTTP/1.1 when the server does not support HTTP/2. This setting is applicable only when HTTPVersion is set to "2.0".

If set to True (default), the component will automatically use HTTP/1.1 if the server does not support HTTP/2. If set to False, the component raises an exception if the server does not support HTTP/2.

The default value is True.

Append:   Whether to append data to LocalFile.

This configuration setting determines whether data will be appended when writing to LocalFile. When set to True, downloaded data will be appended to LocalFile. This may be used in conjunction with Range to resume a failed download. This is applicable only when LocalFile is set. The default value is False.

Authorization:   The Authorization string to be sent to the server.

If the Authorization property contains a nonempty string, an Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys Authorization information to the server.

This property is provided so that the HTTP component can be extended with other security schemes in addition to the authorization schemes already implemented by the component.

The AuthScheme property defines the authentication scheme used. In the case of HTTP Basic Authentication (default), every time User and Password are set, they are Base64 encoded, and the result is put in the Authorization property in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

BytesTransferred:   Contains the number of bytes transferred in the response data.

This configuration setting returns the raw number of bytes from the HTTP response data, before the component processes the data, whether it is chunked or compressed. This returns the same value as the Transfer event, by BytesTransferred.

ChunkSize:   Specifies the chunk size in bytes when using chunked encoding.

This is applicable only when UseChunkedEncoding is True. This setting specifies the chunk size in bytes to be used when posting data. The default value is 16384.

CompressHTTPRequest:   Set to true to compress the body of a PUT or POST request.

If set to True, the body of a PUT or POST request will be compressed into gzip format before sending the request. The "Content-Encoding" header is also added to the outgoing request.

The default value is False.

EncodeURL:   If set to True the URL will be encoded by the component.

If set to True, the URL passed to the component will be URL encoded. The default value is False.

FollowRedirects:   Determines what happens when the server issues a redirect.

This option determines what happens when the server issues a redirect. Normally, the component returns an error if the server responds with an "Object Moved" message. If this property is set to 1 (always), the new URL for the object is retrieved automatically every time.

If this property is set to 2 (Same Scheme), the new URL is retrieved automatically only if the URL Scheme is the same; otherwise, the component raises an exception.

Note: Following the HTTP specification, unless this option is set to 1 (Always), automatic redirects will be performed only for GET or HEAD requests. Other methods potentially could change the conditions of the initial request and create security vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, if either the new URL server or port are different from the existing one, User and Password are also reset to empty, unless this property is set to 1 (Always), in which case the same credentials are used to connect to the new server.

A Redirect event is fired for every URL the product is redirected to. In the case of automatic redirections, the Redirect event is a good place to set properties related to the new connection (e.g., new authentication parameters).

The default value is 0 (Never). In this case, redirects are never followed, and the component raises an exception instead.

Following are the valid options:

  • 0 - Never
  • 1 - Always
  • 2 - Same Scheme

GetOn302Redirect:   If set to True the component will perform a GET on the new location.

The default value is False. If set to True, the component will perform a GET on the new location. Otherwise, it will use the same HTTP method again.

HTTP2HeadersWithoutIndexing:   HTTP2 headers that should not update the dynamic header table with incremental indexing.

HTTP/2 servers maintain a dynamic table of headers and values seen over the course of a connection. Typically, these headers are inserted into the table through incremental indexing (also known as HPACK, defined in RFC 7541). To tell the component not to use incremental indexing for certain headers, and thus not update the dynamic table, set this configuration option to a comma-delimited list of the header names.

HTTPVersion:   The version of HTTP used by the component.

This property specifies the HTTP version used by the component. Possible values are as follows:

  • "1.0"
  • "1.1" (default)
  • "2.0"
  • "3.0"

When using HTTP/2 ("2.0"), additional restrictions apply. Please see the following notes for details.

HTTP/2 Notes

When using HTTP/2, a secure Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (TLS/SSL) connection is required. Attempting to use a plaintext URL with HTTP/2 will result in an error.

If the server does not support HTTP/2, the component will automatically use HTTP/1.1 instead. This is done to provide compatibility without the need for any additional settings. To see which version was used, check NegotiatedHTTPVersion after calling a method. The AllowHTTPFallback setting controls whether this behavior is allowed (default) or disallowed.

HTTP/3 Notes

HTTP/3 is supported only in .NET and Java.

When using HTTP/3, a secure (TLS/SSL) connection is required. Attempting to use a plaintext URL with HTTP/3 will result in an error.

IfModifiedSince:   A date determining the maximum age of the desired document.

If this setting contains a nonempty string, an If-Modified-Since HTTP header is added to the request. The value of this header is used to make the HTTP request conditional: if the requested documented has not been modified since the time specified in the field, a copy of the document will not be returned from the server; instead, a 304 (not modified) response will be returned by the server and the component throws an exception

The format of the date value for IfModifiedSince is detailed in the HTTP specs. For example: Sat, 29 Oct 2017 19:43:31 GMT.

KeepAlive:   Determines whether the HTTP connection is closed after completion of the request.

If true, the component will not send the Connection: Close header. The absence of the Connection header indicates to the server that HTTP persistent connections should be used if supported. Note: Not all servers support persistent connections. If false, the connection will be closed immediately after the server response is received.

The default value for KeepAlive is false.

KerberosSPN:   The Service Principal Name for the Kerberos Domain Controller.

If the Service Principal Name on the Kerberos Domain Controller is not the same as the URL that you are authenticating to, the Service Principal Name should be set here.

LogLevel:   The level of detail that is logged.

This configuration setting controls the level of detail that is logged through the Log event. Possible values are as follows:

0 (None) No events are logged.
1 (Info - default) Informational events are logged.
2 (Verbose) Detailed data are logged.
3 (Debug) Debug data are logged.

The value 1 (Info) logs basic information, including the URL, HTTP version, and status details.

The value 2 (Verbose) logs additional information about the request and response.

The value 3 (Debug) logs the headers and body for both the request and response, as well as additional debug information (if any).

MaxRedirectAttempts:   Limits the number of redirects that are followed in a request.

When FollowRedirects is set to any value other than frNever, the component will follow redirects until this maximum number of redirect attempts are made. The default value is 20.

NegotiatedHTTPVersion:   The negotiated HTTP version.

This configuration setting may be queried after the request is complete to indicate the HTTP version used. When HTTPVersion is set to "2.0" (if the server does not support "2.0"), then the component will fall back to using "1.1" automatically. This setting will indicate which version was used.

OtherHeaders:   Other headers as determined by the user (optional).

This configuration setting can be set to a string of headers to be appended to the HTTP request headers.

The headers must follow the format "header: value" as described in the HTTP specifications. Header lines should be separated by CRLF ("\r\n") .

Use this configuration setting with caution. If this configuration setting contains invalid headers, HTTP requests may fail.

This configuration setting is useful for extending the functionality of the component beyond what is provided.

ProxyAuthorization:   The authorization string to be sent to the proxy server.

This is similar to the Authorization configuration setting, but is used for proxy authorization. If this configuration setting contains a nonempty string, a Proxy-Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys proxy Authorization information to the server. If ProxyUser and ProxyPassword are specified, this value is calculated using the algorithm specified by ProxyAuthScheme.

ProxyAuthScheme:   The authorization scheme to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyPassword:   A password if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyPort:   Port for the proxy server (default 80).

This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyServer:   Name or IP address of a proxy server (optional).

This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

SentHeaders:   The full set of headers as sent by the client.

This configuration setting returns the complete set of raw headers as sent by the client.

StatusCode:   The status code of the last response from the server.

This configuration setting contains the result code of the last response from the server.

StatusLine:   The first line of the last response from the server.

This setting contains the first line of the last response from the server. The format of the line will be [HTTP version] [Result Code] [Description].

TransferredData:   The contents of the last response from the server.

This configuration setting contains the contents of the last response from the server.

TransferredDataLimit:   The maximum number of incoming bytes to be stored by the component.

If TransferredDataLimit is set to 0 (default), no limits are imposed. Otherwise, this reflects the maximum number of incoming bytes that can be stored by the component.

TransferredHeaders:   The full set of headers as received from the server.

This configuration setting returns the complete set of raw headers as received from the server.

TransferredRequest:   The full request as sent by the client.

This configuration setting returns the full request as sent by the client. For performance reasons, the request is not normally saved. Set this configuration setting to ON before making a request to enable it. Following are examples of this request:

.NET Http http = new Http(); http.Config("TransferredRequest=on"); http.PostData = "body"; http.Post("http://someserver.com"); Console.WriteLine(http.Config("TransferredRequest")); C++ HTTP http; http.Config("TransferredRequest=on"); http.SetPostData("body", 5); http.Post("http://someserver.com"); printf("%s\r\n", http.Config("TransferredRequest"));

UseChunkedEncoding:   Enables or Disables HTTP chunked encoding for transfers.

If UseChunkedEncoding is set to True, the component will use HTTP-chunked encoding when posting, if possible. HTTP-chunked encoding allows large files to be sent in chunks instead of all at once. If set to False, the component will not use HTTP-chunked encoding. The default value is False.

Note: Some servers (such as the ASP.NET Development Server) may not support chunked encoding.

UseIDNs:   Whether to encode hostnames to internationalized domain names.

This configuration setting specifies whether hostnames containing non-ASCII characters are encoded to internationalized domain names. When set to True, if a hostname contains non-ASCII characters, it is encoded using Punycode to an IDN (internationalized domain name).

The default value is False and the hostname will always be used exactly as specified. Note: The CodePage setting must be set to a value capable of interpreting the specified host name. For instance, to specify UTF-8, set CodePage to 65001.

UseProxyAutoConfigURL:   Whether to use a Proxy auto-config file when attempting a connection.

This configuration specifies whether the component will attempt to use the Proxy auto-config URL when establishing a connection and ProxyAutoDetect is set to True.

When True (default), the component will check for the existence of a Proxy auto-config URL, and if found, will determine the appropriate proxy to use.

UserAgent:   Information about the user agent (browser).

This is the value supplied in the HTTP User-Agent header. The default setting is "IPWorks HTTP Component - www.nsoftware.com".

Override the default with the name and version of your software.

TCPClient Config Settings

ConnectionTimeout:   Sets a separate timeout value for establishing a connection.

When set, this configuration setting allows you to specify a different timeout value for establishing a connection. Otherwise, the component will use Timeout for establishing a connection and transmitting/receiving data.

FirewallAutoDetect:   Tells the component whether or not to automatically detect and use firewall system settings, if available.

This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallHost:   Name or IP address of firewall (optional).

If a FirewallHost is given, requested connections will be authenticated through the specified firewall when connecting.

If the FirewallHost setting is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the FirewallHost setting is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPassword:   Password to be used if authentication is to be used when connecting through the firewall.

If FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the given firewall. If the authentication fails, the component raises an exception.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPort:   The TCP port for the FirewallHost;.

The FirewallPort is set automatically when FirewallType is set to a valid value.

Note: This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallType:   Determines the type of firewall to connect through.

The appropriate values are as follows:

0No firewall (default setting).
1Connect through a tunneling proxy. FirewallPort is set to 80.
2Connect through a SOCKS4 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
3Connect through a SOCKS5 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
10Connect through a SOCKS4A Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall.

If the FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the Firewall. If the authentication fails, the component raises an exception.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

KeepAliveInterval:   The retry interval, in milliseconds, to be used when a TCP keep-alive packet is sent and no response is received.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. A TCP keep-alive packet will be sent after a period of inactivity as defined by KeepAliveTime. If no acknowledgment is received from the remote host, the keep-alive packet will be sent again. This configuration setting specifies the interval at which the successive keep-alive packets are sent in milliseconds. This system default if this value is not specified here is 1 second.

Note: This value is not applicable in macOS.

KeepAliveTime:   The inactivity time in milliseconds before a TCP keep-alive packet is sent.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. By default, the operating system will determine the time a connection is idle before a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) keep-alive packet is sent. This system default if this value is not specified here is 2 hours. In many cases, a shorter interval is more useful. Set this value to the desired interval in milliseconds.

Linger:   When set to True, connections are terminated gracefully.

This property controls how a connection is closed. The default is True.

In the case that Linger is True (default), two scenarios determine how long the connection will linger. In the first, if LingerTime is 0 (default), the system will attempt to send pending data for a connection until the default IP timeout expires.

In the second scenario, if LingerTime is a positive value, the system will attempt to send pending data until the specified LingerTime is reached. If this attempt fails, then the system will reset the connection.

The default behavior (which is also the default mode for stream sockets) might result in a long delay in closing the connection. Although the component returns control immediately, the system could hold system resources until all pending data are sent (even after your application closes).

Setting this property to False forces an immediate disconnection. If you know that the other side has received all the data you sent (e.g., by a client acknowledgment), setting this property to False might be the appropriate course of action.

LingerTime:   Time in seconds to have the connection linger.

LingerTime is the time, in seconds, the socket connection will linger. This value is 0 by default, which means it will use the default IP timeout.

LocalHost:   The name of the local host through which connections are initiated or accepted.

The LocalHost setting contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the component initiate connections (or accept in the case of server components) only through that interface.

If the component is connected, the LocalHost setting shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

LocalPort:   The port in the local host where the component binds.

This must be set before a connection is attempted. It instructs the component to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by LocalPort after the connection is established.

LocalPort cannot be changed once a connection is made. Any attempt to set this when a connection is active will generate an error.

This; setting is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side. An example is the remote shell (rsh) service in UNIX systems.

MaxLineLength:   The maximum amount of data to accumulate when no EOL is found.

MaxLineLength is the size of an internal buffer, which holds received data while waiting for an EOL string.

If an EOL string is found in the input stream before MaxLineLength bytes are received, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to True, and the buffer is reset.

If no EOL is found, and MaxLineLength bytes are accumulated in the buffer, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to False, and the buffer is reset.

The minimum value for MaxLineLength is 256 bytes. The default value is 2048 bytes.

MaxTransferRate:   The transfer rate limit in bytes per second.

This configuration setting can be used to throttle outbound TCP traffic. Set this to the number of bytes to be sent per second. By default, this is not set and there is no limit.

ProxyExceptionsList:   A semicolon separated list of hosts and IPs to bypass when using a proxy.

This configuration setting optionally specifies a semicolon-separated list of hostnames or IP addresses to bypass when a proxy is in use. When requests are made to hosts specified in this property, the proxy will not be used. For instance:

www.google.com;www.nsoftware.com

TCPKeepAlive:   Determines whether or not the keep alive socket option is enabled.

If set to True, the socket's keep-alive option is enabled and keep-alive packets will be sent periodically to maintain the connection. Set KeepAliveTime and KeepAliveInterval to configure the timing of the keep-alive packets.

Note: This value is not applicable in Java.

TcpNoDelay:   Whether or not to delay when sending packets.

When true, the socket will send all data that is ready to send at once. When false, the socket will send smaller buffered packets of data at small intervals. This is known as the Nagle algorithm.

By default, this config is set to false.

UseIPv6:   Whether to use IPv6.

When set to 0 (default), the component will use IPv4 exclusively. When set to 1, the component will use IPv6 exclusively. To instruct the component to prefer IPv6 addresses, but use IPv4 if IPv6 is not supported on the system, this setting should be set to 2. The default value is 0. Possible values are:

0 IPv4 Only
1 IPv6 Only
2 IPv6 with IPv4 fallback

SSL Config Settings

LogSSLPackets:   Controls whether SSL packets are logged when using the internal security API.

When SSLProvider is set to Internal, this setting controls whether SSL packets should be logged. By default, this setting is False, as it is only useful for debugging purposes.

When enabled, SSL packet logs are output using the SSLStatus event, which will fire each time an SSL packet is sent or received.

Enabling this setting has no effect if SSLProvider is set to Platform.

OpenSSLCADir:   The path to a directory containing CA certificates.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The path set by this property should point to a directory containing CA certificates in PEM format. The files each contain one CA certificate. The files are looked up by the CA subject name hash value, which must hence be available. If more than one CA certificate with the same name hash value exist, the extension must be different (e.g. 9d66eef0.0, 9d66eef0.1 etc). OpenSSL recommends to use the c_rehash utility to create the necessary links. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCAFile:   Name of the file containing the list of CA's trusted by your application.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The file set by this property should contain a list of CA certificates in PEM format. The file can contain several CA certificates identified by

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

... (CA certificate in base64 encoding) ...

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

sequences. Before, between, and after the certificates text is allowed which can be used e.g. for descriptions of the certificates. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCipherList:   A string that controls the ciphers to be used by SSL.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The format of this string is described in the OpenSSL man page ciphers(1) section "CIPHER LIST FORMAT". Please refer to it for details. The default string "DEFAULT" is determined at compile time and is normally equivalent to "ALL:!ADH:RC4+RSA:+SSLv2:@STRENGTH".

OpenSSLPrngSeedData:   The data to seed the pseudo random number generator (PRNG).

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

By default OpenSSL uses the device file "/dev/urandom" to seed the PRNG and setting OpenSSLPrngSeedData is not required. If set, the string specified is used to seed the PRNG.

ReuseSSLSession:   Determines if the SSL session is reused.

If set to true, the component will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:

  • The target host name is the same.
  • The system cache entry has not expired (default timeout is 10 hours).
  • The application process that calls the function is the same.
  • The logon session is the same.
  • The instance of the component is the same.

SSLCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL client authentication.

This setting specifies one or more CA certificates to be included in the request when performing SSL client authentication. Some servers require the entire chain, including CA certificates, to be presented when performing SSL client authentication. The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw
...
eWHV5OW1K53o/atv59sOiW5K3crjFhsBOd5Q+cJJnU+SWinPKtANXMht+EDvYY2w
F0I1XhM+pKj7FjDr+XNj
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
\r \n
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEFjCCAv6gAwIBAgIQetu1SMxpnENAnnOz1P+PtTANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQUFADBp
..
d8q23djXZbVYiIfE9ebr4g3152BlVCHZ2GyPdjhIuLeH21VbT/dyEHHA
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

SSLCheckCRL:   Whether to check the Certificate Revocation List for the server certificate.

This setting specifies whether the component will check the Certificate Revocation List specified by the server certificate. If set to 1 or 2, the component will first obtain the list of CRL URLs from the server certificate's CRL distribution points extension. The component will then make HTTP requests to each CRL endpoint to check the validity of the server's certificate. If the certificate has been revoked or any other issues are found during validation the component raises an exception.

When set to 0 (default) the CRL check will not be performed by the component. When set to 1, it will attempt to perform the CRL check, but will continue without an error if the server's certificate does not support CRL. When set to 2, it will perform the CRL check and will throw an error if CRL is not supported.

This configuration setting is only supported in the Java, C#, and C++ editions. In the C++ edition, it is only supported on Windows operating systems.

SSLCheckOCSP:   Whether to use OCSP to check the status of the server certificate.

This setting specifies whether the component will use OCSP to check the validity of the server certificate. If set to 1 or 2, the component will first obtain the OCSP URL from the server certificate's OCSP extension. The component will then locate the issuing certificate and make an HTTP request to the OCSP endpoint to check the validity of the server's certificate. If the certificate has been revoked or any other issues are found during validation the component raises an exception.

When set to 0 (default) the component will not perform an OCSP check. When set to 1, it will attempt to perform the OCSP check, but will continue without an error if the server's certificate does not support OCSP. When set to 2, it will perform the OCSP check and will throw an error if OCSP is not supported.

This configuration setting is only supported in the Java, C#, and C++ editions. In the C++ edition, it is only supported on Windows operating systems.

SSLCipherStrength:   The minimum cipher strength used for bulk encryption.

This minimum cipher strength largely dependent on the security modules installed on the system. If the cipher strength specified is not supported, an error will be returned when connections are initiated.

Please note that this setting contains the minimum cipher strength requested from the security library. The actual cipher strength used for the connection is shown by the SSLStatus event.

Use this setting with caution. Requesting a lower cipher strength than necessary could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.

When the provider is OpenSSL, SSLCipherStrength is currently not supported. This functionality is instead made available through the OpenSSLCipherList config setting.

SSLEnabledCipherSuites:   The cipher suite to be used in an SSL negotiation.

The enabled cipher suites to be used in SSL negotiation.

By default, the enabled cipher suites will include all available ciphers ("*").

The special value "*" means that the component will pick all of the supported cipher suites. If SSLEnabledCipherSuites is set to any other value, only the specified cipher suites will be considered.

Multiple cipher suites are separated by semicolons.

Example values when SSLProvider is set to Platform: obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=*"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256;CALG_3DES"); Possible values when SSLProvider is set to Platform include:

When TLS 1.3 is negotiated (see SSLEnabledProtocols) only the following cipher suites are supported:

  • TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
  • TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

SSLEnabledCipherSuites is used together with SSLCipherStrength.

SSLEnabledProtocols:   Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Not all supported protocols are enabled by default (the value of this setting is 4032). If you want more granular control over the enabled protocols, you can set this property to the binary 'OR' of one or more of the following values:

TLS1.312288 (Hex 3000)
TLS1.23072 (Hex C00) (Default)
TLS1.1768 (Hex 300) (Default)
TLS1 192 (Hex C0) (Default)
SSL3 48 (Hex 30) [Platform Only]
SSL2 12 (Hex 0C) [Platform Only]

SSLEnabledProtocols - TLS 1.3 Notes

By default when TLS 1.3 is enabled the component will use the internal TLS implementation when the SSLProvider is set to Automatic for all editions.

In editions which are designed to run on Windows SSLProvider can be set to Platform to use the platform implementation instead of the internal implementation. When configured in this manner, please note that the platform provider is only supported on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up. The default internal provider is available on all platforms and is not restricted to any specific OS version.

If set to 1 (Platform provider) please be aware of the following notes:

  • The platform provider is only available on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up.
  • SSLEnabledCipherSuites and other similar SSL configuration settings are not supported.
  • If SSLEnabledProtocols includes both TLS 1.3 and TLS 1.2 the above restrictions are still applicable even if TLS 1.2 is negotiated. Enabling TLS 1.3 with the platform provider changes the implementation used for all TLS versions.

SSLEnabledProtocols: SSL2 and SSL3 Notes:

SSL 2.0 and 3.0 are not supported by the component when the SSLProvider is set to internal. To use SSL 2.0 or SSL 3.0, the platform security API must have the protocols enabled and SSLProvider needs to be set to platform.

SSLEnableRenegotiation:   Whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension is supported.

This setting specifies whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension will be used in the request when using the internal security API. This setting is true by default, but can be set to false to disable the extension.

This setting is only applicable when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

SSLIncludeCertChain:   Whether the entire certificate chain is included in the SSLServerAuthentication event.

This setting specifies whether the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event contains the full certificate chain. By default this value is False and only the leaf certificate will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event.

If set to True all certificates returned by the server will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event. This includes the leaf certificate, any intermediate certificate, and the root certificate.

SSLKeyLogFile:   The location of a file where per-session secrets are written for debugging purposes.

This setting optionally specifies the full path to a file on disk where per-session secrets are stored for debugging purposes.

When set, the component will save the session secrets in the same format as the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable functionality used by most major browsers and tools such as Chrome, Firefox, and cURL. This file can then be used in tools such as Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffice for debugging purposes. When writing to this file the component will only append, it will not overwrite previous values.

Note: This setting is only applicable when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

SSLNegotiatedCipher:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite.

Returns the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipher[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite strength.

Returns the strength of the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g.TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite.

Returns the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake represented as a single string.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm.

Returns the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm strength.

Returns the strenghth of the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedVersion:   Returns the negotiated protocol version.

Returns the protocol version negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedVersion[connId]");

SSLSecurityFlags:   Flags that control certificate verification.

The following flags are defined (specified in hexadecimal notation). They can be or-ed together to exclude multiple conditions:

0x00000001Ignore time validity status of certificate.
0x00000002Ignore time validity status of CTL.
0x00000004Ignore non-nested certificate times.
0x00000010Allow unknown Certificate Authority.
0x00000020Ignore wrong certificate usage.
0x00000100Ignore unknown certificate revocation status.
0x00000200Ignore unknown CTL signer revocation status.
0x00000400Ignore unknown Certificate Authority revocation status.
0x00000800Ignore unknown Root revocation status.
0x00008000Allow test Root certificate.
0x00004000Trust test Root certificate.
0x80000000Ignore non-matching CN (certificate CN not-matching server name).

This functionality is currently not available when the provider is OpenSSL.

SSLServerCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL server certificate validation.

This setting optionally specifies one or more CA certificates to be used when verifying the server certificate. When verifying the server's certificate the certificates trusted by the system will be used as part of the verification process. If the server's CA certificates are not installed to the trusted system store, they may be specified here so they are included when performing the verification process. This setting should only be set if the server's CA certificates are not already trusted on the system and cannot be installed to the trusted system store.

The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

TLS12SignatureAlgorithms:   Defines the allowed TLS 1.2 signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

This setting specifies the allowed server certificate signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal and SSLEnabledProtocols is set to allow TLS 1.2.

When specified the component will verify that the server certificate signature algorithm is among the values specified in this setting. If the server certificate signature algorithm is unsupported the component raises an exception.

The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance: component.SSLProvider = TCPClientSSLProviders.sslpInternal; component.Config("SSLEnabledProtocols=3072"); //TLS 1.2 component.Config("TLS12SignatureAlgorithms=sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa"); The default value for this setting is sha512-ecdsa,sha512-rsa,sha512-dsa,sha384-ecdsa,sha384-rsa,sha384-dsa,sha256-ecdsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha224-ecdsa,sha224-rsa,sha224-dsa,sha1-ecdsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa.

In order to not restrict the server's certificate signature algorithm, specify an empty string as the value for this setting, which will cause the signature_algorithms TLS 1.2 extension to not be sent.

TLS12SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for ECC.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.2 for ECC.

The default value is ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1.

When using TLS 1.2 and SSLProvider is set to Internal, the values refer to the supported groups for ECC. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)

TLS13KeyShareGroups:   The groups for which to pregenerate key shares.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. The groups specified here will have key share data pregenerated locally before establishing a connection. This can prevent an additional round trip during the handshake if the group is supported by the server.

The default value is set to balance common supported groups and the computational resources required to generate key shares. As a result only some groups are included by default in this setting.

Note: All supported groups can always be used during the handshake even if not listed here, but if a group is used which is not present in this list it will incur an additional round trip and time to generate the key share for that group.

In most cases this setting does not need to be modified. This should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448"
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1"
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096"
  • "ffdhe_6144"
  • "ffdhe_8192"

TLS13SignatureAlgorithms:   The allowed certificate signature algorithms.

This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:

  • "ed25519" (default)
  • "ed448" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha512" (default)
The default value is rsa_pss_sha256,rsa_pss_sha384,rsa_pss_sha512,rsa_pkcs1_sha256,rsa_pkcs1_sha384,rsa_pkcs1_sha512,ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256,ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384,ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512,ed25519,ed448. This setting is only applicable when SSLEnabledProtocols includes TLS 1.3.
TLS13SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for (EC)DHE key exchange.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. This setting should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_x448,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072,ffdhe_4096,ffdhe_6144,ffdhe_8192

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096" (default)
  • "ffdhe_6144" (default)
  • "ffdhe_8192" (default)

Socket Config Settings

AbsoluteTimeout:   Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.

If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.

Note: This option is not valid for UDP ports.

FirewallData:   Used to send extra data to the firewall.

When the firewall is a tunneling proxy, use this property to send custom (additional) headers to the firewall (e.g. headers for custom authentication schemes).

InBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the incoming queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be receiving. Increasing the value of the InBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the component is activated the InBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

OutBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the outgoing queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be sending. Increasing the value of the OutBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the component is activated the OutBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

Base Config Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a component is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
  • Last Valid Build: The last valid build number for which the license will work.
MaskSensitive:   Whether sensitive data is masked in log messages.

In certain circumstances it may be beneficial to mask sensitive data, like passwords, in log messages. Set this to true to mask sensitive data. The default is true.

This setting only works on these components: AS3Receiver, AS3Sender, Atom, Client(3DS), FTP, FTPServer, IMAP, OFTPClient, SSHClient, SCP, Server(3DS), Sexec, SFTP, SFTPServer, SSHServer, TCPClient, TCPServer.

UseFIPSCompliantAPI:   Tells the component whether or not to use FIPS certified APIs.

When set to true, the component will utilize the underlying operating system's certified APIs. Java editions, regardless of OS, utilize Bouncy Castle FIPS, while all the other Windows editions make use of Microsoft security libraries.

FIPS mode can be enabled by setting the UseFIPSCompliantAPI configuration setting to true. This is a static setting which applies to all instances of all components of the toolkit within the process. It is recommended to enable or disable this setting once before the component has been used to establish a connection. Enabling FIPS while an instance of the component is active and connected may result in unexpected behavior.

For more details please see the FIPS 140-2 Compliance article.

Note: This setting is only applicable on Windows.

Note: Enabling FIPS-compliance requires a special license; please contact sales@nsoftware.com for details.

UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

When set to false, the component will use the system security libraries by default to perform cryptographic functions where applicable.
