The 4.0.7 firmware supports updated features that can be implemented using the 4RE configuration xml file or the domaintoConfigv1.xsl file for Evidence Library.
This article will describe the new 4RE feature, the corresponding xml nodes (i.e.
<Language>0</Language>), the acceptable values, and where to place them in the configuration file.
The 4RE configuration xml file can be found in a deployed configuration. Manually deploy a configuration to a USB flash drive.
The domaintoConfigv1.xsl file is located in
“Program Files\WatchGuard Video\Hosted
and you will need to open Notepad as an administrator to modify it.
Always make a backup of the configuration file before modifying!
The EL version 3 configuration option is a top level element with a tag of
<ELVersionIs3> which can go anywhere in the domaintoConfigv1.xsl or 4RE configuration file.
The value for the element is either true or false.
If the value is set to true, the EthMgr process will indicate that it is always connected to the backend server and the ConnectionMgr will continually try to connect to the backend server IP address to start a protocol session. This shouldn’t cause any negative affects other than filling up the ConnectionMgr log with useless messages.
If the value is false, the 4RE will not persist the element in any configuration file that it generates and if the tag is not present in the file the value defaults to false in the code. Thus this tag should only be used when you are connected to an Evidence Library 3 backend server and should only be set to true.
Below is an example of the placement tag:
