The Exact Lightweight Integration Server (ELIS) solution provides an easy way of deploying and managing the external solutions of Exact Synergy Enterprise and Exact Globe Next, such as Exact Integrator, Exact Word Merge, Exact Shop Floor Control, and others.
ELIS allows administrators to centrally manage all the servers and solutions from a single location. Moreover, ELIS has a built-in notification system to notify administrators or other users regarding the issues in the solutions or products through emails or request alerts.
This document describes the software requirements of ELIS as of product update 253 for Exact Synergy Enterprise and 408 for Exact Globe Next.
Ports 8013 and 8050 must be opened for the ELIS server to communicate efficiently with the other servers.
Port 8013 is used for the ELIS services. Currently, it is used by the ELIS engine and ELIS console.
It can also be used by external sources such as Exact Globe Next and Exact
8050 is used to communicate between the listener and dispatcher during the
synchronization. For more information, see Exact
