|Configuring Shares Options|
HTTP fallback serves as a secondary transfer method when the Internet connectivity required for Aspera FASP transfers (UDP port 33001, by default) is unavailable. When HTTP fallback is enabled and UDP connectivity is lost or cannot be established, the transfer will continue over the HTTP protocol.
The instructions below describe how to enable and configure HTTP/HTTPS fallback. These instructions assume that you have already configured your Connect Server's Web UI. For additional information on configuring different modes and testing, see the Aspera KB Article "HTTP fallback configuration, testing and troubleshooting."
Configuring HTTP/HTTPS fallback from the GUI:
Launch the transfer server and go to Configuration > Global > HTTP Fallback.
Configuring HTTP/HTTPS fallback by editing aspera.conf:
Run the following commands:
$ /opt/aspera/bin/asuserdata -b -t
To manually inspectaspera.conf, open it from the following directory:
# /etc/init.d/asperacentral restart
# /etc/init.d/asperanoded restart
# /etc/init.d/asperahttpd restart
