The supported installation platforms for the SGD Gateway host are shown in the following table.
By default, the SGD Gateway is configured to support a maximum of 100 simultaneous HTTP connections and 512 simultaneous Adaptive Internet Protocol (AIP) connections. The JVM memory size is optimized for this number of connections. Appendix C of the Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.6 Gateway Administration Guide has details of how to tune the Gateway for the expected number of users.
The supported installation platforms for the SGD Gateway are supported on a Type 1 (bare metal) hypervisor or a Type 2 (hosted) hypervisor, for example Oracle VM VirtualBox, VMWare, or Oracle VM Server for SPARC (previously called Sun Logical Domains or LDoms).
On Solaris 10 OS, installation in zones is not supported.
The following table shows the SGD Gateway installation platforms that have been retired.
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.
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.
The Apache web server supplied with the SGD Gateway is Apache version 2.2.17. It includes the standard Apache modules for reverse proxying and load balancing. The modules are installed as Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) modules.
The SGD Gateway supports the following cipher suites for SSL connections:
