Monitor over Firewall (MOFW)
In a standard LoadRunner scenario, the Controller has direct access to the LoadRunner agents running on remote load generator machines.
Often, firewalls are used in order to prevent unauthorized access to or from private networks, or to restrict access to specific ports. WIth LoadRunner, the firewall blocks the Controller from accessing the remote machine.
To run Vusers or monitor applications over a firewall, use the MOFW component. This component uses a communication configuration based on HTTPS or secured TCP/IP via the standard SSL port on the firewall (port 443).
