All web services called from COP can use HTTPS if the option is activated in COP settings.
FTP depends on configuration. We support FTP, FTPS and SFTP.
SMTP depends on configuration (e.g. mailback).
Consignor Ticket/Shipment Server API
The communication protocol is HTTPS (port 443).
Data upload to Consignor Portal
The communication protocol is HTTP (port 80).
HTTPS is not yet supported on this (work in progress).
Consignor Portal API (data web services):
Available both with HTTP (port 80) and HTTPS (port 443).
Folder security on CONSIGNOR client:
The user logged on to Windows needs to have access to read the local folder where CONSIGNOR client is installed (by default: C:\Program Files (x86)\Consignor client\
Every user that opens up CONSIGNOR client will try to create a folder with configuration files under C:\Users\<username>\appdata\roaming\Consignor\Consignor - to be able to create and maintain these configuration files the Windows user account should have proper access here.
NOTE: After an update on CONSIGNOR server CONSIGNOR will run the proces UpdateClient.exe (found in the CONSIGNOR client installation folder). The user that opens up the client needs then to have read & write access to the CONSIGNOR client installation folder.
Folder security on CONSIGNOR server:
When installing CONSIGNOR server it is required that the user executing the installation package is a local administrator.
Following that it is expected that the user (or 'Local System account' running our local service 'Consignorserver' have local administrator rights.
If the Consignorserver service is not run with local administrator rights not all functionalities will run properly.
Folder security for CONSIGNOR File drop Integration:
When using file drop integration it is required that the service Consignorserver have access to read and write to the configured folders.
Printer requirements on CONSIGNOR client:
The user logged on to Windows needs to have the "Print" persmission to the printer driver - CONSIGNOR by defaults tries to check printer status which requires the security permission "Manage this printer", this status check can be turned off if needed.
Printer requirements on CONSIGNOR server:
Regular printing requirements on server;
This method have the same printer requirements as CONSIGNOR client have.
Automated printing requirements on server;
The automated printing (auto print etc) are executed by the local service 'Consignorserver', and this service needs proper rights. Read more here: Server Printers and Document Printer mapping in CONSIGNOR
