The supported installation platforms for the SGD Gateway host are listed in the Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 Platform Support and Release Notes available at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/821-1928.
The following requirements apply for the SGD servers used with the SGD Gateway:
Secure mode. By default, the SGD Gateway uses secure connections to SGD servers. You must enable secure connections on your SGD servers. Firewall forwarding must not be enabled.
See “Secure Connections to SGD Servers” in Chapter 1 of the Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 Administration Guide for details of how to secure an SGD server.
Integrated mode. SGD Clients must not be configured to access the SGD servers in Integrated mode.
SGD version. The SGD servers must be running at least version 4.5 of SGD. It is best to use version 4.6 of the Gateway with version 4.6 of SGD.
Clock synchronization. It is important that the system clocks on the SGD servers and the SGD Gateway are in synchronization. Use Network Time Protocol (NTP) software, or the rdate command, to ensure that the clocks are synchronized.
For more information on SGD server system requirements, see the Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 Platform Support and Release Notes.
