SynthesisVR Services: Proxy
The SynthesisVR Proxy is a communication and cache interface between the SynthesisVR management applications (Web Administration ; “Local Manager” app ; other third-party apps) and your VR Devices (Computers ; Standalone HMDs) and add-ons (SynthesisVR Leaderboard ; MobileFuel ; etc).
Every SynthesisVR customer is assigned a personal and private AES key (Advanced Encryption Standard) and the communication between the SynthesisVR infrastructure and your SynthesisVR Proxy instance is encrypted with the same key. This ensures your network, despite being connected to the Synthesis infrastructure, is completely isolated.
The Proxy does not have a GUI (Graphic User Interface), but is a Windows Service that runs in the background. Therefore, it is lightweight and doesn’t require a powerful system to run. In a VR Arcade environment, the Proxy is typically installed on just one from the list:
- Dedicated Game Server PC
- The primary Operator PC
- One of the PCVR-based gaming PCs
In specific use cases like Enterprise setups or mobile events, the Proxy can be installed on Cloud infrastructure.
Upon installing the Proxy, a new synthesisvr Windows Administrator account is created and a random 16 characters password is assigned. The account and the password are used to allow the Proxy service to run on the PC even if all the other Windows users are currently not logged in and interacting with the Desktop.
If the SynthesisVR Proxy is stopped, the communication won’t work and you won’t be able to manage your VR devices (manage sessions ; use Voice Chat ; etc).
