Comprehensive Guide to the Rubex Control Center
This guide will introduce you to all the features of the Rubex Control Center that will allow you to manage your installation of Rubex Private Cloud on your server.
To open the Rubex Control Center navigate to your server’s desktop and click on the eFileCabinet Control Center Launcher shortcut. The desktop icon that will look like this:
You can also navigate to C:Windows\Program Files (x86)\eFileCabinet\eFileCabinetControlCenter and click on the ControlCenterLauncher from there.
Also, if you are on the same network as your server, you can access the Rubex Control Center via a web browser. To access the Rubex Control Center via a web browser you will need to:
- Open a web browser of your choice (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.).
- In the address bar type https://127.0.0.1:44334. Please note that you will need to replace the 127.0.0.1 with the IP address of your server.
- Press enter to navigate to the Control Center.
The Home Tab
Once you open the Rubex Control Center you will find yourself in the Home tab, as shown above. In the Home tab you can check for Rubex updates, find the version of Rubex running on the server, find the location of system logs, and manually reset user’s passwords for their Rubex accounts.
Also, you may have noticed a warning in a tan colored box in the Home tab of the Rubex Control Center. This warning is a suggestion to back up the essential data locations of your Rubex server installation.
The Server Tab
The Server tab allows you to see your installation keys, download your account package (please see https://efilecabinethelp.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/9680443179668 for more information on downloading your account package), modify the IP addresses used to connect to the server, look at your database’s configuration, change the default storage location, and turn logging on or off.
The image above shows where you can find your installation keys and where you can modify the IP addresses used to connect to the server. To modify the server IP addresses you would click the ‘Edit’ button in the top right of the screen, make your changes, and then select ‘Save’ in the top right of the screen. If you make any changes to the server IP addresses you will also be prompted to restart the Rubex services.
The image above shows the Database configuration settings. We do not suggest changing the Database configuration settings unless recommended and performed by your IT professional.
The image above shows the last sections of the Rubex Server tab, the Storage options and the Logging Settings. The Storage options allow you to specify where your physical Rubex data files are stored, if you choose to move the data files from their default location of C:\ProgramData\eFileCabinet\5\Data. The Logging Settings allow you to choose if logs are kept to monitor the stability of the Rubex system services. Changes to either of these sections will prompt a restart of the Rubex system services.
The Email Tab
The image above shows the Email tab. The Email tab allows you to specify the SMTP information that the system will use for automated emails. The email account that you setup in this tab will be used to send emails for new users, password resets, document requests, and shared documents.
