In the modern client-server applications, the Browsers have kicked out the old UI clients. However, there were still some limitations, especially on the communication level preventing browsers to obtain smooth live updates from the server end. The WebSocket technology makes it possible now to have more interaction between the browser and the web server, facilitating live content updates.
The result is that your kanban boards will come to life. Tasks are created, moved, and updated in front of your eyes in real-time. Any change someone does around the globe will immediately be reflected in your open browser. This happens even in the background, while you are working on another task.
Note: To have the WebSockets running you need to access our WebSocket servers that are listening on port 443.
wss://wssus1.kanbanize.com and so on.
If these are not accessible from inside your network, talk with your IT to white list us and enable the 443 port on your firewall with the WSS protocol in place.
If you want to validate your network and support of WebSockets, you could test that with http://websocket.org/echo.html
Make sure both:
- Connection to the Server and
- Message Sending are working as expected.
To validate your browser with our servers, use the links from the example above.
