Using the Internal Index Server

Business Console requires that you have a K2 Server and a K2 Index Server on each host running Business Console. Business Console automatically creates and manages these servers.


Note   Index servers automatically created by Business Console already use the required settings.


The internal index server uses an anonymous setting. This approach means that the access to the K2 Index Server is anonymous, but trusted client IP settings can be used to ensure that a K2 Index Server is only accessed by the trusted hosts, including the Business Console server, hosts serving search applications (that need to access the K2 Index Server), and Push API clients.

This allows for the explicit configuration of the security net through existing tools, but some configuration is required to set up security. IP spoofing might be possible.
