How can I change the ports that the robot used to communicate on the bus?


Release: UIM v8.x or higher
Component: Robot


In the robot.cfg file ( Nimsoft install Folder\robot) you can use the following syntax to change the controller port:

For example:

   controller_port = 48001
   spooler_port = 48004

Also if this is a secure robot it will use port 48100 as its default outbound port. To change this, make the following addition to the robot.cfg: 

proxy_outbound_port = <new port number>

Additional Information

These changes are not recommended, but in some cases may be necessary.
