AY Track as a Web Server
AY Mail 2 Corporate Edition lets you install
AY Track on a remote
Windows or Linux server.
You can configure AY Track to work as a web server.
It can act as a simple general purpose web server, but
it also can serve subscription and unsubscription forms,
and it can register hits from the emails
that you have sent with AY Mail.
If you want to use AY Track as a web server the computer
where you install AY Track must meet the following criteria:
1. The computer must have Pentum or compatible processor.
2. The computer must run under Microsoft Windows or Linux.
3. It must be constantly connected to the Internet
(24 hours a day, 7 days a week).
4. It must have a fixed (static) IP address. Each computer on
the Internet is recognized by its IP number or IP address.
This number may be either fixed (which means that it never
changes) or variable (which means that it may change from
time to time). If you do not know whether your IP is fixed,
contact your Internet Service Provider. You must also know
your IP number.
5. If the computer is behind a firewall, the incoming
ports 80 (for HTTP server) and 443 (for HTTPS server) must
be cleared through the firewall. You can use other port numbers
for a web server.
6. It is highly desirable, but not necessary to have a DNS
record for your computer. DNS record links the name of your
computer to its IP address. You can use the IP number directly
and your web links may look like http://192.168.168.192.
The DNS record will give your computer a name, such as
www.yourtrackserver.com or yourtrackserver.yourcompany.com.
Contact your ISP and ask them to set up a DNS record for you.
The easiest way to set up AY Track web server is by running AY Track
Setup Wizard. Select Settings->AY Track Setup Wizard from the
AY Mail menu.
