If user wants to connect to a remote computer,
he'll specify the address in the "IP address/host" box.
My question is:
Why is there "Accepted IP Addresses" option for
"IP Connection - SSH"?
I understand why this option exists for
(e.g., Smart Serial Connection) but it doesn't make a
lot of sense to have it for the IP Connection - SSH.
Also, what is this "SSL/TLS" checkbox doing exactly?
It was causing confusion for the user.
Is there something in the protocol.xml that can be changed to avoid having this "Accepted IP address" box?
This option is to specify From which IP address you want to accept incoming information. I'm not sure from which connector you took this screenshot, but it will be a Smart-Serial connection and DataMiner will most likely listen on a specific port on which the device can send unconsolidated updates to DataMiner. You can add multiple Accepted IP Addresses by using the Add button.
The SSL/TLS option is if the device is using encryption.
