Installing Sectona Remote Access Publisher Component
Sectona Remote Access Publisher Component (RAP) is an independent installable component that receives requests from specified TCP Port to actual TCP Port. This is essentially needed to redirect the PAM portal from an external zone like the internet.
For example, you have a URL https;//remote.sectona.com:8845 which must communicate to an application hosted internally via https://internalpam.sectona.com.
If you have a firewall that allows TCP forwarding you may alternatively use that to achieve this functionality.
