Set Up and Configure Remote Boards

Certain setup configurations must be completed on both the host server and the local server. Because the server acting as host must be made available across the Internet, it is strongly recommended that the steps outlined for the host server in the following section be taken to secure the implementation.

To secure the implementation
  1. Implement SSL. AFter, access WebEOC over the Internet using https.

  2. In the Admin window, go to SystemGeneral.

  3. In the General Manager, set the following security parameters. See the table below for recommended settings and values.


    Recommended Setting

    Enforce strong passwords


    Password age (expiration)

    180 days

    Minimum password length

    8 character minimum

    Account lockout threshold

    3 attempts

    Account lockout duration

    30 minutes

  4. Determine the board permissions to be granted to the local server. These permissions cannot be overridden at the local level.

    • Identify (or add) the board or boards to be shared.

    • Identify the exact input and display view names for the boards.

    • Determine board permissions to be granted to the local user. These permissions cannot be overridden by permissions set at the local level.

    • Determine whether the board is to be Global or Incident Independent.

      • If set to Global, all entries posted to the board through any active incident on the host server are displayed and remain displayed until the incident through which it was posted is archived.

      • Data posted to a board configured as Incident Independent is not removed when the incident through which it was posted is archived, nor is board data archived.

      • If the board is not configured for either Global or Incident Independent, multiple incidents can be rolled up to a master view.

  5. Set up user accounts in the Users Manager for use with the remote board feature. The username is posted if displayed in the remote board. In the Edit User window, select the Multiple User Login and Dual Commit options.

  6. Add the user account created in the previous step to a position, and assign that position to a group. Set permissions (Read, Read/Write, or Read/Write/Delete) for each board that the remote users have access to.

  7. Record the information determined and/or created in the preceding steps. You must provide the following information to the administrator of the local server to complete the remote board configuration:

    • URL of the host server.

    • Username, password, and position name for the account to be used for the remote board feature.

    • Exact name of the board or boards.

    • Exact name of both the input view and display view for the board to which users have access.

    • Permissions assigned for each board in the group profile.
