This configuration file should not need to be modified.

Security Information

In order for the APEL publisher to successfully publish records to the APEL server, the emi-apel node (where the publisher is installed) must be registered in GOCDB as a “glite-APEL” node and the correct DN for the host certificate must be specified.

See 5. Open Ports.


This node (if it is not collocated with other node types) should not allow access to users. Any connection other than the ones described above should be treated as suspicious.

Not available.
