Configure Map Uploader to Work with SSL Using HTTPS

In order for the Map Uploader to work with SSL using HTTPS communication with the Spectrum server, you need to make a configure change in the Uploader.config file.

Note: You must make the configuration change prior to loading the Map Uploader in MapInfo Pro.

To change the configuration:

  1. Open the Uploader.config file in a text editor. This file is located where you unzipped the map-uploader.zip file. It was recommended that you placed the plugin where your other MapInfo Professional plugins are installed, or here: C:\Program Files(x86)\MapInfo\Spectrum Spatial Map Uploader.
  2. In the SpectrumServiceSoapBinding section of the config file, modify the security section as follows:

    		
    <security mode="Transport">
    	<transport clientCredentialType="Basic" proxyCredentialType="None" realm="DCGRealm" />
    	<message clientCredentialType="UserName" algorithmSuite="Default" />
    </security>
    			
    			
  3. Save the Uploader.config file.

You can now load the plugin into MapInfo Pro and connect to the Spectrum server with SSL using HTTPS.
