On-Premise Server (SOPS) Setup¶
The SyncSign on-premise deployment server is the managing bridge between the data source (e.g., calendar system) and the SyncSign Hubs/Displays. It’s a standalone and compact hardware device, which can be installed within the company’s infrastructure. The main advantage is that the data are not going outside your company’s network.
We provides three fulfillment options for SyncSign On-Premise System (SOPS),
Hardware server with preinstalled software.
A downloadable virtual machine package, which runs on the desktop computer or server inside your office.
An importable machine image to create a computing instance that runs directly on the cloud service provider, such as AWS, Azure Cloud, or Google Cloud (Available soon).
Purchase the license and download the VM image from SyncSign
Install the latest virtual machine software:

Setup Data Sources¶
The SOPS support integration with multiple data sources:
Google Calendar / G-Suite
Microsoft Office 365
Microsoft Exchange Server
Although its possible to use the SOPS with http scheme (e.g. http://<sops-ip-address>). it’s better to setup a TLS encrypted communication.
Before proceed, please prepare this at hand:
A domain name you owned
The SSL/TLS certificates purchased from a trusted source (or use a self-signed certificates)
Sign-in the SOPS portal, go to [Settings]>[Connection]
Setup a domain that you are going to visit the SOPS portal and endpoints
Modify the DNS A record and point it to this domain. Now you should be able to open the portal with http://<your-sops-domain>
Click the “Enable SSL/TLS communication” checkbox, then upload the root certificates and private key to the portal
