Use use dataverse 4.5.1 and I want to connect it to worldmap.
To do this, I plan to install geoconnect.
My geoconnect will not be installed on the same machine as dataverse. 
I saw in the geocnnect install folder only urls in
I assumed that these urls served to link to dataverse from geoconnect.
 Since I would like to install geoconnect on a machine other than dataverse, what are the files to modify to ensure the navigation between geoconnect and dataverse?

Best regards,

I've only ever set up Geoconnect on my laptop and that was a while ago but I believe the "Update the Geoconnect URL on your Dataverse Database" section might help you:

It explains how to to update the "mapitlink" column in the "worldmapauth_tokentype" database table:

I hope this helps and that I'm not leading you astray. That "" documentation should help generally, even if you aren't deploying Geoconnect to Heroku.
