Sequoia Configuration - MCP Gateway

Overview

The gateway handles the communication of messages between Sequoia and MCP.

Configuration involves adding the login details required to authenticate with MCP's system - these login details are provided by MCP at the time of acquiring your badge code(s).

Setting up the Gateway

To access the gateway, navigate through Sequoia Enterprise Management in the Sequoia Configuration application and expand the Sequoia Gateway Configuration node.
