Issue/Introduction

There is another application using the default port 48000. I need to be able to change this to a non-default port when using the robot in proxy mode.
 

 

     

    Environment

     
    • UIM version: 7.X, 8.x
    • Robot version: > 7.X
    • Platforms: All

    Resolution

    When using proxy mode for a robot all probes take on the port of the controller. By default this is port 48000.
     
    In the robot.cfg either using raw configure or editing the file directly you can add the following key:
     
    controller_port = <New Port>
     
     
    Example robot.cfg:
     
    <controller>
       domain = domain
       robotip = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
       robotname =
       robotip_alias =
       controller_port =
       spooler_port =
       hubip = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
       hubdomain =
       first_probe_port = 48000
       controller_port = 48100
       hub = HubName
       hubrobotname = HubRobotName
       hubport = 48002
       access_0 = 0
       access_1 = 1
       access_2 = 2
       access_3 = 3
       access_4 = 4
       secondary_domain =
       secondary_hub =
       secondary_hubrobotname =
       secondary_hubip =
       secondary_hubport =
       secondary_hub_dns_name =
       secondary_robotip_alias =
       robot_mode = normal
       set_qos_source = no
       autoremove = no
       default_priority_level =
       proxy_mode = 1
       proxy_log =
       hub_update_interval = 900
       loglevel = 3
       logsize = 3000
       logfile = controller.log
       config_lock_timeout =
       port_alive_check =
       port_alive_include_local =
       startup_timeout =
       suspend_on_loopback_only = yes
       temporary_hub_broadcast = yes
       do_not_broadcast =
       unmanaged_security = domain_locked
       send_alive =
       alarm_level_comfail_restart =
       alarm_level_dispatch_error = major
       alarm_level_max_restarts = major
       alarm_level_start_error = major
       alarm_level_suspended =
       alarm_level_timed_not_finished = warning
       alarm_level_timed_error_return = warning
       alarm_level_unregister = major
       alarm_level_request_error = major
       alarm_level_postinstall = no alarm

       capture_output =
       default_fail_window =
       max_restarts =
       ip_version = ipv4
       local_ip_validation = yes
       strict_ip_binding = no
       system_uptime_qos = no
       os_user2 =
       ssl_mode = 0
       ssl_cipher = DEFAULT
       <environment>
       </environment>
    </controller>
