    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    * To set up the ExitWatch security gate program to interact with Alma via SIP 2.0, for tracking of items with RFID tags.

    Procedure:
    To configure Alma to integrate with ExitWatch via SIP 2.0, perform the following steps:
    1. Install stunnel on an ExitWatch PC, defining the stunnel.conf for accepting connections on 127.0.0.1 port 5001 and connecting to the Alma base URL (ex. na01.alma.exlibrisgroup.com) on port 6443.
    2. Set up Alma with an Integration Profile for each ExitWatch PC, with profile type of "Self Check".
    3. Download the certificate from Alma per each profile (client.pem) to the directory where stunnel was installed (C:\Program Files\stunnel\ by default).
    4. In ExitWatch > Admin > Communications tab, change the Host IP to 127.0.0.1 and the Host Port to 5001.
