The configuration of crossWeb takes place in the crossWeb module of crossAdmin. Apart from basic adjustments of a technical nature, you can also configure settings such as the spell-check of crossWeb.
The crossWeb module can be accessed via crossWeb > crossWeb Configurator in the crossAdmin module bar on the left-hand side of the screen.
Testing the configuration
Press Check in the various sections of the crossWeb settings to check the respective settings for correctness and its due function.
Please note that the tests merely provide indications for possible problems. If a problem should occur, please contact our support desk.
Terminology in crossWeb
Under crossTerm Options, you can configure the connection of crossWeb to crossTerm Web or crossTerm Now. In this way, a user can directly access crossTerm Web or crossTerm Now while working with crossWeb. Thus, the user also has access to the Across terminology management using only a browser.
In the URL field, enter the address under which crossTerm Web or crossTerm Now can be reached.
Under Session Options, you can determine after how many seconds a crossWeb user is to be logged out automatically.
To avoid burdening the server with too many requests and to avoid long logout times, we recommend setting a timeout value between 300 and 1200 seconds.
Please note that if a proxy server is used, the proxy server timeout must not be shorter than the crossWeb timeout.
The crossAPI Interactive Settings contains the installation GUID of the Across Server.
The name or IP address of the Across Server must be entered in the crossAPI Settings.
If crossAPI is installed on a different server than the Across Server, the name of the server on which crossAPI is installed must be entered.
As crossAPI user, enter an Across user by means of which the Acrossserver settings can be obtained. This may be any user who belongs to the Across user group crossAPI, e.g. the Default Supervisor. The user does not need to have a license.
Under General, you can determine whether the crossTank and crossTerm windows are to be available for the crossWeb users.
Using the respective button, you can enable the spell-checkers Sentry Spellchecker, Hunspell, and crossTerm available in crossWeb for all crossWeb users on the server side. In addition, you can determine that words written in capitals (e.g. UNHCR) and words containing numbers (e.g. L10N) can be ignored.
Under E-Mail Settings, you can enter the SMTP server settings for sending e-mail when finishing tasks via crossWeb. Click Authentication for further settings.
The option for proxy use is intended for very specific use cases. Should you experience problems with the display in crossWeb, please contact our support. In this case the option for proxy use can solve the problem.
In addition, you can set a default language for the crossWeb user interface in the crossWeb Options section. In this way, the homepage of crossWeb will be opened in the selected language but, if necessary, can be changed by the user.
After changing the crossWeb configuration, the changed settings must be transferred to the underlying configuration file of crossWeb by choosing Update. Subsequently, restart the application pool of crossWeb or of the Web server (IIS). The changes will only become active after this has been done.
Apart from the above-mentioned crossWeb configuration options, there are other crossWeb features that can be configured. For example, the number of paragraphs taken into consideration by the proactive search (caching) can be determined. These additional adjustments can be activated and configured by way of the crossWeb configuration file.
For further information, please consult your contact at Across Systems GmbH.
General information on Across services is available at www.across.net/en/services/.
If crossWeb does not work properly, you can re-register crossWeb with the Web Server (IIS) via Tools > Configure crossWeb.
Please note that port 80 (HTTP) must be opened in the firewall for the external access via crossWeb.
If the Web Server (IIS) and crossWeb are used in the normal way, the data transfer takes place without encryption via HTTP. Information on encrypted transfer via HTTPS is available at Web-based Across Components with HTTPS.
