Connecting the Midpoint to the VSA

Virtual Scan Appliance

This procedure connects your VSA to its midpoint, using the midpoint <ip.ip.ip.ip>, credentials, save, and restart commands.

Ensure you have the following information:

  • Midpoint IP address
  • Midpoint username
  • Midpoint password

If you do not have any of this information, please contact support@veracode.com. Veracode Technical Support can provide these details using the file exchange in My Portfolio, in the Veracode Platform.

To connect the midpoint:
  1. Enter midpoint <ip.ip.ip.ip>.
  2. Enter credentials and, when prompted, enter the midpoint username and password.
    Enter midpoint credentials.
  3. Enter save and, at the prompt, enter y to save.
  4. Enter restart.
    Enter restart to restart the appliance.
  5. After restarting the VSA, wait one minute for the connection to establish, and then enter self_test to check if the VSA has connected to its midpoint.
    If the midpoint is not connected:
    • Verify the midpoint IP address is whitelisted for outbound traffic over port 443.
    • If using a proxy, verify the proxy settings configured on the VSA are correct by entering status.

    Run a self test to see if the midpoint is connected.
  6. Contact Veracode Technical Support when the midpoint is connected to the VSA.
