Specifying a New Local or Remote Server

After you have configured the local connection to EFT (that is, a connection on the same computer on which EFT is installed), you might want to create a remote connection to remotely administer EFT. Or if you have added a new Server, you need to configure the new local host.

To specify a new local or remote host

  1. Do one of the following to open the New Administrator Connection wizard:

  2. Click one of the following:

  3. In the Label box, type the name of EFT to which you want to connect.

  4. In the Host address box, type the IP address of EFT computer.

  5. In the Port box, type the port number used by EFT.

  6. Click Next.

    If you close the wizard before the new connection process is complete, none of your settings are saved.

  7. After the new host is created, the Login dialog box appears. Type your username and password, and then click Connect.

If you are unable to connect to a remote Server, verify that the remote Server is configured to allow remote administration, and that you have provided the correct IP address, port, and login information.
