Install the Cloud Connector to securely connect applications on SAP Cloud Platform with your SAP backend systems
SAP Cloud Connector will act as a gateway between SAP Cloud Platform and systems in your on-premise system landscape, it must have an Internet connection to the hosts of SAP Cloud Platform as well as LAN access to your systems (SAP Cloud Platform has IP addresses for connectivity for each region).
As a consequence, the Cloud Connector will be a security-critical component in your system landscape, so it is highly recommended to restrict the operating system access to the machine where you install it to a minimal set of users who will administrate it.
Note: You can check the current prerequisites for newer versions of the Cloud Connector in the official documentation.
Login to your SAP Windows RDP created as part of the SAP environment installation.
