Network considerations

  • The viewer uses the RelativityWebAPI as well as the Relativity.Distributed components.
  • Note: Inside the viewer, the Distributed piece is called from within the application, as indicated by the URL referenced in the bottom left corner of the viewer pane.

  • The files retrieved in the viewer are HTTPS.
  • Note: If a user does not have the latest Microsoft updates to add 3rd Party Certificate authorities as trusted certificates, an error message could occur, even if the user is using the correct website.
