** When using SQL Server 2008(R2) additional configuration is required. See Windows Installation guide for more information.

Checklist

Database

Note the following:

  • Host name / IP address.
  • Database type (Microsoft SQL or MySQL).
  • SQL account name and password.
  • Database name (default: mideye).
  • Instance name (if applicable).

Note: Installing and upgrading Mideye Server requires a database account with rights to ALTER, CREATE and DELETE tables in the Mideye database.

The database can be installed locally or be hosted remotely on another server.

LDAP Server (if applicable)

Note the following:

  • LDAP service account with read-rights for Mideye Server user search.

RADIUS clients

Request integration manuals for the RADIUS clients (e.g. VPN-concentrator, Citrix portal etc) from Mideye Support.

Note the following:

  • IP Address
  • RADIUS port (if other than 1812)
  • RADIUS shared secret
  • If PAP or MS-CHAPv2 is used.  Note: For MS-CHAPv2, a Microsoft Network Policy Server (NPS) is required.

Firewall

  • Ensure the firewall is open for two-way communication between RADIUS client and Mideye Server on the selected RADIUS port (default: UDP/1812). If installing on Windows the installation package will automatically add firewall rules for RADIUS and the TCP-port that is being used by the web-interface. Note that these firewall rules by default will only allow traffic on the Ethernet port if its “Network profile” is set to “Private”. These firewall openings must be added manually when installing on Linux-based operating systems.
  • Note the public IP used by the Mideye Server when communicating with the Mideye Switch on a customer-specific TCP port assigned by Mideye.
  • Request a firewall opening and customer specific TCP port from support@mideye.com.
  • Verify that the firewall is open for outgoing TCP traffic from the Mideye Server to 217.151.192.84 and 79.136.112.54 on the customer-specific port.
    Be advised, that during a new installation, the Mideye Server will only be able to contact secondary.mideye.com. The firewall opening to primary.mideye.com will first take place after traffic has been sent from the customers Mideye Server to secondary.mideye.com. This will take a few days to complete. During this time, the installation can be completed and traffic will be handled by secondary.mideye.com.
  • For simplified Mideye+ activation, the Mideye Server also needs access to the following URLs: https://activate01.mideye.com:443,  https://activate02.mideye.com:443, https://activate01.mideye.com/health .

Proxy server (if applicable)

Note the following:

  • Proxy server IP address
  • Port number
  • SOCKS version

Installation package

Request login credentials to https://downloads.mideye.com from support@mideye.com. Include your mobile number in the request, since login i protected with two-factor authentication.
