Stunnel for self-check
Setting up Stunnel for self-check
- Select a server or workstation and install Stunnel
- Obtain the Alma certificate
- Update the configuration file
- Configure the self-service machines
We tend to recommend using an stunnel instance for a group of self-check machines which have something in common. Installing stunnel on the self-check machine, when allowed by the vendor, also has the benefit of having less network traffic since the self-check machine will be configured to communicate with localhost (127.0.0.1).
Obtaining an Alma Certificate
Configure Stunnel as described in Configuring Stunnel.
Alma address for self-check communication:<alma domain>.exlibrisgroup.com:6443
Configuring the Self-Service Machine to Communicate with Stunnel
- Integrated Library System (ILS) Host IP Address – Enter the IP address of the workstation that is running Stunnel.
- ILS TCP Port Number – Enter the port that you specified during Stunnel configuration (such as 5001).
