8 GB RAM
24 GB hard disk space
OneIP address in the VPN address range for each connected eLux device1
Internal HTTPS access to the SCG WebAdmin interface (Interface for configuration and management)
Bi-directional connection (via network card or firewall rules) of eLux devices to the Scout Server and of the Scout Cloud Gateway to the Identity provider
Scalability by means of clustering
If required, multiple machines can be installed. as SCG servers. 1024 devices can be connected per server.
You can set up your instance with the help of a Debian Installer under a Linux system. Alternatively, Unicon offers a ready configured virtual appliance.
In both cases, the network must be configured before the SCG is started to enable routing from the DMZ to the internal network. The virtual machine assists with the setup.
|Debian package||Virtual machine|

The virtual machine is installed using an .ova template (Open Virtual Appliance).
|Required system||Configured Debian Linux system
We recommend Ubuntu 20.04.

Availability from the Internet
Management protocol between eLux devices and Scout Server
For connecting the devices, the SCG server should be reachable from the Internet as FQDN. The default port for communication is 22125.
If you are running multiple SCG instances in a cluster, we recommend that you distribute the requests to the different instances via router.
VPN port for connecting devices
For cluster operation: Each SCG instance requires a unique combination of FQDN and port for its VPN server.
The administrator performs the configuration in the SCG WebAdmin interface, see Gateways.
HTTPS Port 443 for connecting the WebAdmin interface (configuration, clustering, management)
If Active Directory or Keycloak is used, the servers must be reachable
Only virtual machines (.ova): port 22 for access via SSH to the instance for administrative access (optional)
For cluster operation: MongoDB port 27017 for internal communication of the databases across the SCG instances
