Startup parameter: scautolistener

Startup parameters change the behavior of the Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




Defining this parameter causes the Service Manager server to listen for connections requests from the legacy SCAuto integration on the communications port specified.

Important: The SCAuto listener cannot accept connection requests from Windows or web clients. You must start a client listener to manage client connections.
