The SNMPTCPAgent component is used to implement TCP-based SNMP Agent Applications.

Syntax

nsoftware.IPWorksSNMP.Snmptcpagent

Remarks

The SNMPTCPAgent component implements a TCP-based standard SNMP Agent as specified in the SNMP RFCs. The component supports SNMP v1, v2c, and v3.

The component provides both encoding/decoding and transport capabilities, making the task of developing a custom SNMP agent as simple as setting a few key properties and handling a few events. SNMP data such as SNMP object id-s (OID-s) are exchanged as text strings, thus further simplifying the task of handling them.

The component is activated/deactivated by calling the Activate or Deactivate method. These methods enable or disable sending and receiving. The activation status can be found in the Active property.

The component operates asynchronously. Requests are received through events such as GetRequest, GetBulkRequest, GetNextRequest, etc. and the corresponding responses are automatically sent when the events return. Traps are sent through the SendTrap method.

SNMPv3 USM security passwords are requested through the GetUserPassword event, and event parameters such as User and SecurityLevel provide information about the security attributes of received requests, and enable granular decision capability about what to provide and what not to provide. The SendSecureTrap method is used to send authenticated (secure) SNMPv3 traps.

The AddUser, RemoveUser, ShowCache, and ClearCache methods are used to manage an internal authentication cache. This internal cache can be used as an alternative to the GetUserPassword event, automatically checking the cache against the security parameters provided in the request signature.

SNMP OIDs, types, and values are provided in the Objects collection of SNMP objects for both sent and received packets.

Other packet information is provided through corresponding event parameters, such as Community, or RequestId.

AcceptData Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Enables or disables data reception.

Syntax

public bool AcceptData { get; set; }
Public Property AcceptData As Boolean

Default Value

True

Remarks

Setting the property to False temporarily disables data reception. Setting the property to True re-enables data reception.

This property is not available at design time.

Active Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Indicates whether the component is active.

Syntax

public bool Active { get; set; }
Public Property Active As Boolean

Default Value

False

Remarks

This property indicates whether the component is currently active and can send or receive data.

The component will be automatically activated if it is not already and you attempt to perform an operation which requires the component to be active.

Note: Use the Activate or Deactivate method to control whether the component is active.

This property is not available at design time.

LocalEngineId Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

The Engine Id of the SNMP Agent.

Syntax

public string LocalEngineId { get; set; }
public byte[] LocalEngineIdB { get; set; }
Public Property LocalEngineId As String
Public Property LocalEngineIdB As Byte()

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property is only used for SNMPv3 packets (when SNMPVersion is 3).

LocalHost Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

The name of the local host or user-assigned IP interface through which connections are initiated or accepted.

Syntax

public string LocalHost { get; set; }
Public Property LocalHost As String

Default Value

""

Remarks

The LocalHost property 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 property 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).

NOTE: LocalHost is not persistent. You must always set it in code, and never in the property window.

LocalPort Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

The port in the local host where the component listens.

Syntax

public int LocalPort { get; set; }
Public Property LocalPort As Integer

Default Value

161

Remarks

The LocalPort property must be set before the component is activated (Active is set to True). It instructs the component to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine (default 161).

You may also set LocalPort to 0. This allows the TCP/IP stack to choose a port at random. The value chosen is provided via the LocalPort property after the component is activated through the Active property.

LocalPort cannot be changed once the component is Active. Any attempt to set the LocalPort property when the component is Active will generate an error.

Note: on macOS and iOS, root permissions are required to set LocalPort to any value below 1024.

Objects Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

The objects in the current request.

Syntax

public SNMPObjectList Objects { get; }
Public Property Objects As SNMPObjectList

Remarks

The SNMP objects being sent or received in the current request. The collection is first cleared, then populated every time an SNMP packet is received. It is also used to create outgoing SNMP packets.

This collection is indexed from 0 to count -1.

RequestId Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

The request-id to mark outgoing packets with.

Syntax

public int RequestId { get; set; }
Public Property RequestId As Integer

Default Value

1

Remarks

If a custom value is needed for RequestId, the property must be set before sending the request. The component increments RequestId automatically after sending each packet.

This property is not available at design time.

SNMPVersion Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Version of SNMP used for outgoing requests (traps).

Syntax

public SnmptcpagentSNMPVersions SNMPVersion { get; set; }

enum SnmptcpagentSNMPVersions { snmpverV1, snmpverV2c, snmpverV3 }
Public Property SNMPVersion As SnmptcpagentSNMPVersions

Enum SnmptcpagentSNMPVersions snmpverV1 snmpverV2c snmpverV3 End Enum

Default Value

2

Remarks

This property takes one of the following values:

snmpverV1 (1)SNMP Version 1.
snmpverV2c (2)SNMP Version 2c.
snmpverV3 (3)SNMP Version 3.

SSLAcceptServerCert Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Instructs the component to unconditionally accept the server certificate that matches the supplied certificate.

Syntax

public Certificate SSLAcceptServerCert { get; set; }
Public Property SSLAcceptServerCert As Certificate

Remarks

If it finds any issues with the certificate presented by the server, the component will normally terminate the connection with an error.

You may override this behavior by supplying a value for SSLAcceptServerCert. If the certificate supplied in SSLAcceptServerCert is the same as the certificate presented by the server, then the server certificate is accepted unconditionally, and the connection will continue normally.

Please note that this functionality is provided only for cases where you otherwise know that you are communicating with the right server. If used improperly, this property may create a security breach. Use it at your own risk.

SSLAuthenticateClients Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

If set to True, the server asks the client(s) for a certificate.

Syntax

public bool SSLAuthenticateClients { get; set; }
Public Property SSLAuthenticateClients As Boolean

Default Value

False

Remarks

This property is used in conjunction with the SSLClientAuthentication event. Please refer to the documentation of the SSLClientAuthentication event for details.

SSLCert Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

The certificate to be used during SSL negotiation.

Syntax

public Certificate SSLCert { get; set; }
Public Property SSLCert As Certificate

Remarks

The digital certificate that the component will use during SSL negotiation. Set this property to a valid certificate before starting SSL negotiation. To set a certificate, you may set the Encoded field to the encoded certificate. To select a certificate, use the store and subject fields.

SSLEnabled Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Whether TLS/SSL is enabled.

Syntax

public bool SSLEnabled { get; set; }
Public Property SSLEnabled As Boolean

Default Value

False

Remarks

This setting specifies whether TLS/SSL is enabled in the component. When False (default) the component operates in plaintext mode. When True TLS/SSL is enabled.

Note: SSL is not currently supported in this product. This setting is reserved for future user.

This property is not available at design time.

SSLServerCert Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

The server certificate for the last established connection.

Syntax

public Certificate SSLServerCert { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property SSLServerCert As Certificate

Remarks

SSLServerCert contains the server certificate for the last established connection.

SSLServerCert is reset every time a new connection is attempted.

This property is read-only.

SysUpTime Property (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Time passed since the agent was initialized (in hundredths of a second).

Syntax

public long SysUpTime { get; set; }
Public Property SysUpTime As Long

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property is used when sending SNMP traps, and it normally provides the time since the system was restarted in 1/100s of a second.

If another value is desired, you may set this property to a custom value. From that point on, SysUpTime will return the value set plus time elapsed.

This property is not available at design time.

The following configuration settings provide more control about how traps are generated: TrapPort, TrapAgentAddress, TrapCommunity, TrapEnterprise. The SysUpTime property provides the trap timestamp.

SendTrap sends an unauthenticated trap. The SendSecureTrap method is used to send authenticated SNMPv3 traps.

If any values are provided in the Objects collection, they are sent unchanged. In the case of an SNMPv2 or SNMPv3 Trap, if Objects has a count that is equal to 0, the following values are set: sysUpTime.0 equal to SysUpTime and snmpTrapOID.0 equal to TrapOID.

For SNMPv2 and SNMPv3 Traps, TrapOID must contain the full OID of the Trap. For SNMPv1, TrapOID must be a string of the form "generic.specific" where generic and specific are numeric values providing the Trap Generic Type and Specific Type.

For SNMPv1, TrapOID must be of the form "GenericTrap.SpecificTrap". These values are sent in the PDU header. TrapAgentAddress and TrapEnterprise are taken from the corresponding configuration settings.

Additionally, the following symbolic values are recognized and translated as follows:

Trap Name OID (SNMPv2 and above) SNMPv1 GenericType
coldStart 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.1 0
warmStart 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.2 1
linkDown 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.3 2
linkUp 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.4 3
authenticationFailure 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.5 4
egpNeighborLoss 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.6 5
enterpriseSpecific 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5.7 6

For SNMPv3, the User parameter shows the user that was supplied with the packet. This parameter MUST be used together with the SecurityLevel parameter which shows the level of security in the message.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated, non encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 1. For an authenticated and encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 2.

Respond is True by default, and will automatically send a response using the value in LocalEngineId. To suppress the response, set Respond to False.

The value returned to SourceAddress for EngineBoots is always 0, and EngineTime is the number of seconds since January 1st, 1970 (GMT).

  Public ReadOnly Property ErrorDescription As String
  Public Property Respond As Boolean
End Class

Remarks

This is only available for SNMP versions 2 and 3.

The list of variables in the SNMP packet, including optional values and types, is provided through the Objects collection. Each object is of type SNMPObject. This type describes the Oid, ObjectType, and Value of each SNMP object. These variables must be copied to another location before the event has completed executing, or they may be overridden by other events.

The SourceAddress and SourcePort parameters show the address and port of the sender as reported by the TCP/IP stack.

The MessageId parameter identifies the received request.

For SNMPv3, the User parameter shows the user that was supplied with the packet. This parameter MUST be used together with the SecurityLevel parameter which shows the level of security in the message.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated, non encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 1. For an authenticated and encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 2.

To send a response, the Respond parameter must be set to true. By default, this value is false, which means no response will be sent. The ErrorStatus parameter may also be set to a valid SNMP status code (the default value is 0, which represents no error).

The following is a list of valid SNMP status code values:

0 (noError) No error.
1 (tooBig) The response cannot fit in a single SNMP message.
2 (noSuchName) Variable does not exist.
3 (badValue) Invalid value or syntax.
4 (readOnly) Variable is read-only.
5 (genError) Other error (SNMPv1).
6 (noAccess) Access denied.
7 (wrongType) Wrong object type.
8 (wrongLength) Wrong length.
9 (wrongEncoding) Wrong encoding.
10 (wrongValue) Wrong value.
11 (noCreation) No creation.
12 (inconsistentValue) Inconsistent value.
13 (resourceUnavailable) Resource unavailable.
14 (commitFailed) Commit failed.
15 (undoFailed) Undo failed.
16 (authorizationError) Authorization error.
17 (notWritable) Variable is not writable.
18 (inconsistentName) Inconsistent name.

The ErrorIndex parameter indicates the index of the first variable (object) that caused an error. The default value is 0.

Variable indexes start with 0. ErrorIndex has no meaning when ErrorStatus is 0 (no error).

A GetBulkRequest is very similar to a GetNextRequest, the difference is that Getbulk performs a continuous GetNext operation based on the MaxRepitions value. The NonRepeaters value will determine the number of Objects for which a simple GetNext operation should be performed. For the remaining variables, a continuous GetNext operation is performed based on the MaxRepitions value.

So if you send a request containing X objects, the agent will perform N simple GetNext operations and M continuous GetNext operations X - N times. With X being the number of objects received, N being the number of NonRepeaters, and M being the number of MaxRepitions. Thus the SNMPMgr is expecting to receive N + M x (X - N) objects, assuming that each object has M successors.

GetNextRequest Event (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Fired when a GetNextRequest packet is received.

Syntax

public event OnGetNextRequestHandler OnGetNextRequest;

Public Class SnmptcpagentGetUserPasswordEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property PasswordType As Integer
  Public ReadOnly Property User As String
  Public Property Password As String
  Public Property Algorithm As Integer
End Class

Remarks

The GetUserPassword event is fired after initial inspection of SNMPv3 requests.

The type of password required is provided in the PasswordType parameter: 1 for authentication, and 2 for encryption (privacy).

The password corresponding to User (if any) must be provided in the Password parameter. If the password is valid, processing will continue to other events such as GetRequest, SetRequest, etc.

If the PasswordType parameter is 1 (authentication is used), the Algorithm parameter can be set. Possible values are:

ValueAuthentication Algorithm
0 (default)Any
1MD5
2SHA1
3SHA256
4SHA512

If the PasswordType parameter is 2 (encryption is used), the Algorithm parameter must also be set. Possible values are:

ValueEncryption Algorithm
1 (default)DES
2AES
33DES
4AES192
5AES256

If the password does not match the signature in the request, a BadPacket event will be fired, at which point you can decide whether to report the error to the client (see the description of the BadPacket event for more information).

If the User is invalid or unknown, set the password to empty string (default) to ignore the request. This will result in a BadPacket event being fired, at which point you can decide whether to report the error to the client or not.

GetUserSecurityLevel Event (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Sets the security level for an incoming packet.

Syntax

public event OnGetUserSecurityLevelHandler OnGetUserSecurityLevel;

public delegate void OnGetUserSecurityLevelHandler(object sender, SnmptcpagentGetUserSecurityLevelEventArgs e);

public class SnmptcpagentGetUserSecurityLevelEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string User { get; }
  public string EngineId { get; }
public byte[] EngineIdB { get; } public int SecurityLevel { get; set; } }
Public Event OnGetUserSecurityLevel As OnGetUserSecurityLevelHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnGetUserSecurityLevelHandler(sender As Object, e As SnmptcpagentGetUserSecurityLevelEventArgs)

Public Class SnmptcpagentGetUserSecurityLevelEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property User As String
  Public ReadOnly Property EngineId As String
Public ReadOnly Property EngineIdB As Byte() Public Property SecurityLevel As Integer End Class

Remarks

The GetUserSecurityLevel event is fired after the first inspection of each SNMPv3 request. The SecurityLevel parameter determines the level of security for the message.

On entry, the SecurityLevel parameter contains the default security level for User if the user is located in the internal cache, or if the User is not found in the cache, the SecurityLevel will be -1.

The value of SecurityLevel upon exiting the event, determines how the message will be processed:

-1The message will be ignored and a BadPacket event will be fired.
0No security. The message will be processed without any authentication and/or encryption.
1Authentication only. The message will be checked for a valid signature and the GetUserPassword event will be fired to verify the authentication password.
2Authentication and Privacy. The message will be checked for a valid signature and the GetUserPassword event will be fired twice: first to verify the authentication password, and then to verify the privacy password.

HashPassword Event (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Fired before and after a password is hashed.

Syntax

public event OnHashPasswordHandler OnHashPassword;

public delegate void OnHashPasswordHandler(object sender, SnmptcpagentHashPasswordEventArgs e);

public class SnmptcpagentHashPasswordEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string Password { get; }
  public int AuthAlgorithm { get; }
  public string Hash { get; set; }
}
Public Event OnHashPassword As OnHashPasswordHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnHashPasswordHandler(sender As Object, e As SnmptcpagentHashPasswordEventArgs)

Public Class SnmptcpagentHashPasswordEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property Password As String
  Public ReadOnly Property AuthAlgorithm As Integer
  Public Property Hash As String
End Class

Remarks

SNMPv3 passwords are hashed in order to obtain authentication and encryption keys. This is an expensive operation, and in certain situations it may be preferable to store the hashed passwords externally and supply them on demand.

If a hash is required, the event fires with an empty string in the Hash parameter. In this case, you can choose to supply a value for the hash and stop the component from computing the hash.

The event also fires every time a hash is computed. In this case, the Hash parameter contains the value of the computed hash.

AuthAlgorithm contains either 1 for HMAC-MD5-96, 2 for HMAC-SHA-96 or 3 for HMAC-192-SHA-256

PacketTrace Event (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Fired for every packet sent or received.

Syntax

public event OnPacketTraceHandler OnPacketTrace;

public delegate void OnPacketTraceHandler(object sender, SnmptcpagentPacketTraceEventArgs e);

public class SnmptcpagentPacketTraceEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string Packet { get; }

Public Class SnmptcpagentPacketTraceEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property Packet As String
Public ReadOnly Property PacketB As Byte() Public ReadOnly Property Direction As Integer Public ReadOnly Property PacketAddress As String Public ReadOnly Property PacketPort As Integer End Class

Remarks

The PacketTrace event shows all the packets sent or received by the component.

Packet contains the full contents of the datagram.

Direction shows the direction of the packet: 1 for incoming packets, and 2 for outgoing packets.

In the case of an incoming packet, PacketAddress and PacketPort identify the source of the packet.

In the case of an outgoing packet, PacketAddress and PacketPort identify the destination of the packet.

ReadyToSend Event (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Fired when the component is ready to send data.

Syntax

public event OnReadyToSendHandler OnReadyToSend;

public delegate void OnReadyToSendHandler(object sender, SnmptcpagentReadyToSendEventArgs e);

public class SnmptcpagentReadyToSendEventArgs : EventArgs {
}
Public Event OnReadyToSend As OnReadyToSendHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnReadyToSendHandler(sender As Object, e As SnmptcpagentReadyToSendEventArgs)

Public Class SnmptcpagentReadyToSendEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
End Class

Remarks

For SNMPv3, the User parameter shows the user that was supplied with the packet. This parameter MUST be used together with the SecurityLevel parameter which shows the level of security in the message.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated, non encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 1. For an authenticated and encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 2.

The list of variables in the SNMP packet, including optional values and types, is provided through the Objects collection. Each object is of type SNMPObject. This type describes the Oid, ObjectType, and Value of each SNMP object. These variables must be copied to another location before the event has completed executing, or they may be overridden by other events.

The SourceAddress and SourcePort parameters show the address and port of the sender as reported by the TCP/IP stack.

SetRequest Event (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Fired when a SetRequest packet is received.

End Class

Remarks

The list of variables in the SNMP packet, including optional values and types, is provided through the Objects collection. Each object is of type SNMPObject. This type describes the Oid, ObjectType, and Value of each SNMP object. These variables must be copied to another location before the event has completed executing, or they may be overridden by other events.

The SourceAddress and SourcePort parameters show the address and port of the sender as reported by the TCP/IP stack.

The MessageId parameter identifies the received request.

For SNMPv3, the User parameter shows the user that was supplied with the packet. This parameter MUST be used together with the SecurityLevel parameter which shows the level of security in the message.

The SecurityLevel parameter shows whether the request has been authenticated. If SecurityLevel is 0, the request has NOT been authenticated (i.e. the packet signature has not been verified). For an authenticated, non encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 1. For an authenticated and encrypted request, SecurityLevel is 2.

To send a response, the Respond parameter must be set to true. By default, this value is false, which means no response will be sent. The ErrorStatus parameter may also be set to a valid SNMP status code (the default value is 0, which represents no error).

The following is a list of valid SNMP status code values:

0 (noError) No error.
1 (tooBig) The response cannot fit in a single SNMP message.
2 (noSuchName) Variable does not exist.
3 (badValue) Invalid value or syntax.
4 (readOnly) Variable is read-only.
5 (genError) Other error (SNMPv1).
6 (noAccess) Access denied.
7 (wrongType) Wrong object type.
8 (wrongLength) Wrong length.
9 (wrongEncoding) Wrong encoding.
10 (wrongValue) Wrong value.
11 (noCreation) No creation.
12 (inconsistentValue) Inconsistent value.
13 (resourceUnavailable) Resource unavailable.
14 (commitFailed) Commit failed.
15 (undoFailed) Undo failed.
16 (authorizationError) Authorization error.
17 (notWritable) Variable is not writable.
18 (inconsistentName) Inconsistent name.

The ErrorIndex parameter indicates the index of the first variable (object) that caused an error. The default value is 0.

Variable indexes start with 0. ErrorIndex has no meaning when ErrorStatus is 0 (no error).

SSLClientAuthentication Event (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Fired when the client presents its credentials to the server.

Syntax

public event OnSSLClientAuthenticationHandler OnSSLClientAuthentication;

public delegate void OnSSLClientAuthenticationHandler(object sender, SnmptcpagentSSLClientAuthenticationEventArgs e);

  Public ReadOnly Property CertEncoded As String
Public ReadOnly Property CertEncodedB As Byte() Public ReadOnly Property CertSubject As String Public ReadOnly Property CertIssuer As String Public ReadOnly Property Status As String Public Property Accept As Boolean End Class

Remarks

This event fires when a client connects to the component and presents a certificate for authentication. 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").

RemoteAddress is the IP address of the connecting client.

RemotePort is the source port of the connecting client.

CertEncoded is the base64 encoded certificate presented by the client.

CertSubject is the subject of the certificate presented by the client.

CertIssuer is the subject of the issuer of the certificate presented by the client.

Status is the stauts of the certificate.

Accept defines whether the certificate is accepted.

SSLServerAuthentication Event (SNMPTCPAgent Component)

Fires when connecting to the server.

Syntax

public event OnSSLServerAuthenticationHandler OnSSLServerAuthentication;

public delegate void OnSSLServerAuthenticationHandler(object sender, SnmptcpagentSSLServerAuthenticationEventArgs e);

  Public ReadOnly Property CertEncoded As String
Public ReadOnly Property CertEncodedB As Byte() Public ReadOnly Property CertSubject As String Public ReadOnly Property CertIssuer As String Public ReadOnly Property Status As String Public Property Accept As Boolean End Class

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"). If it is decided to continue, you can override and accept the certificate by setting the Accept parameter to True.

RemoteAddress is the IP address of the server.

RemotePort is the source port of the server.

CertEncoded is the base64 encoded certificate presented by the server.

CertSubject is the subject of the certificate presented by the server.

CertIssuer is the subject of the issuer of the certificate presented by the server.

This setting takes the hex-encoded key for authentication and may be set before calling SendSecureTrap.

CompatibilityMode:   Whether to operate the component in a specific compatibility mode.

This setting will cause the component to operate in a manner different than normal so that it is compatible with third-party products and libraries. The following table lists the possible values for this setting:

0 (default)Component operates normally for greatest compatibility.
1Component uses SNMP4j-compatible encryption (AES192 and AES256).

ContextEngineId:   Sets the context engine id of the SNMP entity.

If set, the context engine id included in the PDU will be set.

ContextName:   Sets the context name of the SNMP entity.

If set, the context name included in the PDU will be set.

DecryptLogPackets:   Whether to decrypt logged packets.

When set to true this setting will cause the component to decrypt packets logged in PacketTrace. This only applies when using SNMP Version 3. The default is false.

DerivedKeyCacheSize:   The size of the internal cache used to store derived keys.

When set to a value greater than 0 the component will cache keys derived from passwords. This can improve performance in some scenarios. This value should be set to twice the number of expected unique passwords (e.g. 20 for 10 passwords). This only applies when using SNMP Version 3.

The cache is enabled by default and the default value is 20. To disable the cache set the value to 0. This setting is only applicable when SNMPVersion is set to 3.

DerivedKeyCacheStatus:   The status of the internal cache used to store derived keys.

When queried this setting returns the number of slots occupied in the cache (e.g. 6/20). This setting only applies when SNMPVersion is set to 3.

EncryptionKey:   The key to use for encryption.

This setting takes the hex-encoded key for encryption and may be set before calling SendSecureTrap.

ForceLocalPort:   Forces the component to bind to a specific port.

The default value is True, which makes the component throw an error if LocalPort is busy. When ForceLocalPort is set to False and the port is busy, the component silently chooses another random port.

MsgMaxSize:   The maximum supported message size.

This setting specifies the maximum supported message size in bytes. This is only applicable when SNMPVersion is set to 3. This corresponds to the "msgMaxSize" field in the request.

RespondFromDestIP:   Whether to respond from the IP address that the request was sent to.

By default the component will always respond from the interface defined by LocalHost. In the case where aliases have been defined on the system, incoming traffic may have a different value for the destination. This setting tells the component to respond using a source address that matches the destination address of the received packet. This setting should only be set to True if there is a specific reason to do so.

SourceAddress:   The source address of the received packet.

This setting holds the source address of the received packet. This may be queried at any time, including from within an event, and returns the source address of the received packet. This value is read-only.

SourcePort:   The source port of the received packet.

This setting holds the source port of the received packet. This may be queried at any time, including from within an event, and returns the source port of the received packet. This value is read-only.

SynchronizeEvents:   Controls whether or not events are fired from the main thread when timeout is positive.

The default value is True, which makes the component fire events from the main thread when timeout is greater than zero. Note: If your application requires more speed and efficiency, or does not require events to be fired from the main thread, you can set this to False to fire the events from secondary threads. This config is not applicable if timeout is zero, when events will always be fired from secondary threads.

TimeWindow:   The time window used for SNMPv3 timeliness checking (authentication).

The default value is 150 (seconds).

TrapAgentAddress:   The address of the object generating the trap.

This setting is used to specify the agent-addr field when sending V1 Traps. The default value is the address of the localhost. This value must be an IPv4 address.

TrapCommunity:   The value of the Community parameter for SNMP traps.

Typical values are "public" or "private". The default value is "public".

TrapEnterprise:   The type of the object generating the trap.

This setting specifies the type of object generating the SNMP Trap. The default value is "1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5" (i.e. SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTraps).

TrapPort:   The port where SNMP traps are sent.

The TrapPort is the TCP port where SNMP traps are sent.

A valid port number (a value between 1 and 65535) is required. The default value is 162.

TCPClient Config Settings

CloseStreamAfterTransfer:   If true, the component will close the upload or download stream after the transfer.

This setting determines whether the input or output stream is closed after the transfer completes. When set to True (default), all streams will be closed after a transfer is completed. In order to keep streams open after the transfer of data, set this to False. the default value is True.

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.

FirewallListener:   If true, the component binds to a SOCKS firewall as a server (TCPClient only).

This entry is for TCPClient only and does not work for other components that descend from TCPClient.

If this entry is set, the component acts as a server. RemoteHost and RemotePort are used to tell the SOCKS firewall in which address and port to listen to. The firewall rules may ignore RemoteHost, and it is recommended that RemoteHost be set to empty string in this case.

RemotePort is the port in which the firewall will listen to. If set to 0, the firewall will select a random port. The binding (address and port) is provided through the ConnectionStatus event.

The connection to the firewall is made by calling the Connect method.

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 throws 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 throws 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

UseNTLMv2:   Whether to use NTLM V2.

When authenticating with NTLM, this setting specifies whether NTLM V2 is used. By default this value is False and NTLM V1 will be used. Set this to True to use NTLM V2.

SSL Config Settings

CACertFilePaths:   The paths to CA certificate files when using Mono on Unix/Linux.

This setting specifies the paths on disk to CA certificate files when using Mono on Unix/Linux. It is not applicable in any other circumstances.

The value is formatted as a list of paths separated by semicolons. The component will check for the existence of each file in the order specified. When a file is found the CA certificates within the file will be loaded and used to determine the validity of server or client certificates.

The default value is:

/etc/ssl/ca-bundle.pem;/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt;/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt;/etc/pki/tls/cacert.pem

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.

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-----

..
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 throws 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.

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)
SSL2 12 (Hex 0C)

SSLEnabledProtocols - TLS 1.3 Notes

By default when TLS 1.3 is enabled the component will use the internal TLS implementation.

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.

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.

Note: When SSLProvider is set to Internal this value is automatically set to true. This is needed for proper validation when using the internal provider.

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 ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite 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 ciphersuite strength.

Returns the strength of the ciphersuite 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 ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite 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.

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
...
eWHV5OW1K53o/atv59sOiW5K3crjFhsBOd5Q+cJJnU+SWinPKtANXMht+EDvYY2w

-----END CERTIFICATE-----
\r \n
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

-----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 throws an exception.

The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance: TCPClient.SSLProvider = TCPClientSSLProviders.sslpInternal; TCPClient.Config("SSLEnabledProtocols=3072"); //TLS 1.2 TCPClient.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.

GUIAvailable:   Tells the component whether or not a message loop is available for processing events.

In a GUI-based application, long-running blocking operations may cause the application to stop responding to input until the operation returns. The component will attempt to discover whether or not the application has a message loop and, if one is discovered, it will process events in that message loop during any such blocking operation.

In some non-GUI applications, an invalid message loop may be discovered that will result in errant behavior. In these cases, setting GUIAvailable to false will ensure that the component does not attempt to process external events.

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.
UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the component whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the component will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions where applicable. When set to false calls to unmanaged code will be made. In certain environments this is not desirable. To use a completely managed security implementation set this setting to true. Setting this to true tells the component to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.

Note: This setting is static. The value set is applicable to all components used in the application.

When this value is set the product's system DLL is no longer required as a reference, as all unmanaged code is stored in that file.
