Configuring the IoT Gateway

All application data files are separated from the executable files. Application data files are files that can be potentially changed by the user. Executable files are files potentially changed by installers. For the Console and Service applications, application data files are stored in the IoT Gateway subfolder to the operating system's Program Data folder. Example: C:ProgramDataIoT Gateway. For the UWP app, a link to the program data folder is provided at the top of the window. The application data folder contains files you might have to configure to get it to work as you want.

Configuring the XMPP interface

All IoT Gateways connect to the XMPP network. This connection is used to provide a secure and interoperable interface to your gateway and its underlying devices. You can also administer the gateway through this XMPP connection.

The XMPP connection is defined in different manners, depending on the encapsulation. The app lets the user configure the connection...
