HTTP Details


HTTP (Simple POST) interfaces use a simple HTTP message to send HL7 messages or CDA documents from Sender to Receiver.

Listener / Server

Field    Description
Port   
  • The port which the interface will listen on
  • The valid range of port numbers is 1 - 65535
  • Avoid ports that are used by other processes or HL7Connect interfaces
  • Check the services file (c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\services or c:\windows\services) to see a list of commonly pre-assigned ports.
  • On Windows, the command netstat -a will list the TCP ports that are already taken by listening processes.
URL    The path on which the interface will respond. Any other path will generate a Module not found error. (Do not include the http://server:port section, just the path portion of the url)
SSL Certificate   If SSL is desired, put the file name of the SSL certificate (generated using the Manager, see Generating SSL Certificates for more information). The filename must be a valid filename for HL7Connect on the server. You can use "$cert$" in the filename, which maps to the Certificates directory in the HL7Connect root directory on the server
Username   User name if a username/password is required when the client attempts to send a message (standard HTTP authentication)
Password    Password if a username/password is required when the client attempts to send a message (standard HTTP authentication)

Sender / Client

Field    Description
URL    The path on which the interface will respond. Any other path will generate a Module not found error (Do not include the http://server:port section, just the path portion of the url)
Username   User name if a username/password is required when the client attempts to send a message (standard HTTP authentication)
Password    Password if a username/password is required when the client attempts to send a message (standard HTTP authentication)
