Listening IP Address and Port

EFT's administration listening IP address and port are configured in the EFT Server Setup wizard. You can change the IP address and/or port later, if necessary. For example, you might have initially configured EFT to listen on All incoming IP addresses and want to change it to a specific IP address, or maybe you need to add IPv6 addresses.

IPv6 addresses are not supported by MSMQ; however, a server and/or site can bind to IPv6, provided that there is also an IPv4 address (e.g., another adapter) that can route between HA nodes.

To change EFT's listening IP address and port

  1. In the administration interface, connect to EFT and click the Server tab.

  2. On the Server tab, click the Server node that you want to manage.

  3. In the right pane, click the Administration tab.

  4. You cannot type an address in the Server administrator listening IP box. Click Configure. The Listening IP Settings dialog box appears.

  5. Select one or more check boxes for the IP address(es) on which the Server is to listen for connections, and then click OK. The selected address(es) appear in the Listening IP addresses box.

  6. In the Port box, type the new port number.

  7. Click Apply to save the changes on EFT.
