Frontier chris21 requirements

The following are the requirements of the Frontier chris21 environment prior to use with the connector.

Choosing between the "HTTP Communication Method" and the "Web Services Option"

UNIFY Identity Broker for Frontier chris21 supports both the "HTTP Communication Method" and the "Web Services Method".

The Frontier chris21 components required for the "HTTP Communication Method" are available free of charge. These Frontier chris21 components are located on the Frontier chris21 installation CD and do not require activation.

Please note that although UNIFY Identity Broker for Frontier chris21 supports the Frontier "Web Services Option", it is not required.
