16.3. Logging In to Physical Servers via SOAP API

Virtuozzo Automator supports using SOAP API on the VA Agent side. This is intended for developers who want to write their own additions to VA Agent using SOAP API.

The support for SOAP is provided by an Apache HTTP Server module that listens on port 4646. The module comes in an optional package va-pp-httpd that is not included into the VA Agent package group. You will need to install the package on slave servers to which you will send SOAP requests:

# yum install va-pp-httpd

The module will start alongside Apache:

# systemctl start httpd
# systemctl enable httpd

Now requests sent to port 4646 will be redirected by Apache to the SOAP module that will, in turn, process and send them to VA Agent.
