Conference Proxy Points of Interest


For reference purposes, this topic includes some ISL Light points of interest in the ISL Conference Proxy administration. Please refer to ISL Conference Proxy Manual for more information about ISL Conference Proxy administration.

Activity monitor - Servers

Information about your servers - you can restart, connect a server to grid, disconnect a server from grid.

Activity monitor - Clients

Shows connections to servers and concurrent usage statistics.

Activity monitor - System statistics

Activity monitor - Sessions - History - ISL Light

Configuration - General - HTTPT ports

Default values (80, 443, 7615) can be changed - e.g. if port 80 is already taken by the web server, remove it from the list and ISL Conference Proxy will not try to bind that port. If possible, please have a separate IP address for ISL Conference Proxy and all three ports available in order to allow most users to connect.

Configuration - General - Default domain for user authentication

Change the default domain from "default" to some other domain, e.g. "mycompany".

Configuration - General - Default program customization

Assign a certain customization as the default value - default is none.

Configuration - ISL Light

Used for managing ISL Light server-side settings, e.g. set "Send chat transcripts" to "Yes" if you want chat contents to be saved in the session history.


Messages enable you to send specific messages to ISL Light Desk at certain events - they can be defined in a file or inline within ISL Conference Proxy administration.

Message file definitions are read line-by-line (empty lines are ignored) by ISL Conference Proxy and they must use the following format:


time_in_seconds - used for defining the delay for the message, depending on the specified action_codes

action_codes - used for defining the event that triggers the action as well as defining the action itself - first choose one of the three events:

s - after ISL Light Desk obtains a session code

o - after ISL Light Desk and ISL Light Client connect

t - before session disconnects (it only works for sessions that have a limited session duration)

then choose one of the following actions:

c - show the message in ISL Light Desk's chat area

m - show the message in a message box (a window containing message_text and an OK button)

d - show the message on user's desktop

program_version - specify the desired ISL Light Desk version, e.g. dk-3.0 (this matches to 3.0.0, 3.0.1 etc.) - if this field is left empty, it applies to all versions

message_text - specify the text that will be shown to ISL Light Desk - it must be URL encoded

This example will show the message Welcome to my_company support. in ISL Light Desk's chat area five seconds after the connection between ISL Light Desk and ISL Light Client has been established:

5#oc##Welcome to my_company support.
