The Server page shows the interface and the port on which the
server listens for incoming client connections.
- Interface: By default, the server listens on
all interfaces, however, if the server computer is multi-homed
(i.e. has more than one IP address) then you can listen on a
specific interface, rather than all interfaces, by selecting the
appropriate IP address from the Interface drop down list. You might
typically want to change this from [All
Interfaces] if the server computer is connected to both
the LAN and directly to the Internet (on different interfaces) and
you only wish the server to listen on the local interface.
- Listening Port: The accepting range of
Listening Port is 1-65535. Please find a free port and make sure
the client should be connected to the same port.
- Listen BackLog: The maximum length of queue of
pending connections. On Windows workstations, the maximum backlog
value is 5. On Windows servers, the maximum value is 200.
Tip: Changes will take effect the
next time you startup the server.
