Spok Messenger Ports: Reporting Module Interface

  1. Choose Interfaces > Ports. The Ports dialog displays.
  2. Click the New button to create a new port on the server. NOTE: When creating a port that has similar properties to an existing port, select the port of similar type before selecting New. Details specific to that port only are required.
  3. Enter the fields as described in the table below:

    Name

    In the Name field, enter a name to describe the port.

    Protocol

    From the Protocol list box, select the Reporting Module Interface option. The dialog is updated with the required fields.

    Type

    From the Type list box, choose the TCP/IP option. The Spok Messenger server can be configured to send packets to a Middleware Reporting server over a TCP/IP connection. If the Spok Messenger Server requires connection to a network consulting an IT Administrator for information on the specific network, you need to obtain an IP Address or computer name and a port number and be connected to the network. A network administrator also provides access through a firewall if required.

    IP Bandwidth

    From the IP Bandwidth list box, choose the bandwidth of the modem used to transfer data.

    IP Address

    In the IP Address field, enter the IP address of the Middleware Reporting server.

    TCP Port

    In the TCP Port field, enter the port number that Spok Messenger sends Reporting data to. This must match the setting in the Middleware Reporting server. (6544 by default)

    Listen for TCP Connections

    This field is automatically disabled when the reporting port type is chosen and is not editable.

    Send Buffer Size

    The Send Buffer Size field represents the amount of socket buffer allocated for sending data over the TCP connection. Default values are typically recommended. This field must be a multiple of 4096 bytes.

    Recv Buffer Size

    The Recv Buffer Size field represents the amount of socket buffer allocated for sending data over the TCP connection. Default values are typically recommended. This field must be a multiple of 4096 bytes.

  4. Click Save to commit the new settings to the Server. The new port configuration is saved.
