A service gateway enables communication from an app to the GemFire for VMs service instance. The running App's Location determines whether a service gateway is required.
The operator needs to complete two items to enable a service gateway:
With a VMware Tanzu Application Service for VMs (TAS for VMs) version 2.10 deployment, follow the directions to Enabling and Configuring TCP Routing in the VMware TAS for VMs documentation. Note the range entered for the TCP routing ports. One port from this range will be required to configure the GemFire for VMs tile.
Configure the GemFire for VMs tile to enable the service gateway as described in Settings: Enable Creation of a Service Gateway in Installing and Configuring VMware Tanzu GemFire.
