DataPower XA35 (Green): XA = XML Accelerator

DataPower XS40 (Yellow): XS = XML Security

DataPower XI50 (Blue): XI = XML Integration

“SSL Termination” refers to the destination system that recieves an SSL connection.

DataPower can not participate in a two-phase commit transaction. Seems to me like this is a feature that needs to be incorporated sooner than later.

Network ports are disabled “at christmas morning” when you first take the device out of the box. Need to connect to the serial port to enable them.

Default port for the Web GUI is 9090.

For security:
