Fusebox solution through stunnel
ProtoBase Hosted Solution through Virtual Private Network (VPN)
For premise-based implementations, a single VPN can accommodate both authorization and settlement traffic.
The Fusebox application (Next Generation Hosted Solutions from Elavon) uses the stunnel application as a secure TCP connection between the property and the Elavon Hosting Center. This secure connection allows credit card authorizations and communication between the Oracle Hospitality Hosting Center and the Elavon Hosting Center for settlements. Stunnel is a small application that uses a certificate to establish an SSL connection. You can implement stunnel through a Simphony CAL package. stunnel Installation Methods contains instructions about implementing stunnel.
ProtoBase Hosted Solution
Set the first VPN between the property and the ProtoBase Hosting Center. Install and configure a VPN appliance to establish the connection. This connection is used to process credit card authorizations. Contact an Elavon representative for details about this implementation.
The second VPN appliance resides at the Oracle Hospitality Hosting Center and is used to process all settlements (batching) for the property. If multiple properties exist within an Enterprise organization, you can use a single VPN connection. Contact an Elavon representative for details about this implementation.
