pdserver server port details
InfoPrint Manager sets
aside and assigns pdserver server-to-server ports automatically. Just like
the default client port, these ports are assigned on each machine and not
per InfoPrint Manager system.
This means that a pdserver on two different machines can be listening on the
same server port number just like they can be listening on the same client
port number (6874). By default, ten ports are selected starting with the lowest
block of ten available above 2000 in
Each InfoPrint Manager server
is assigned a port from the available ports when it first starts. If possible,
it reuses that port on subsequent runs.
The first column displays whether a server port is in use; the second column
displays the port number; and the third column displays the process ID (PID)
of the process using the port. Notice how
port 2062 is
info3, but it is not currently running.
NAME column displays the name of the InfoPrint Manager server.
To start more than ten InfoPrint Manager servers
(including the notification daemon and any SAP callback daemons) on one machine,
you must add more server ports. If you try to start a server when there are
not enough server ports available, you receive
5010-760 There are
no available ports error message. The server ports can be redefined
(both the quantity and the starting number) by using pdinitports. All InfoPrint Manager servers on the
machine must be shutdown to run pdinitports. See the InfoPrint Manager: Reference for more
information about the pdinitports utility.
Each InfoPrint Manager server advertises its server port in the namespace when it starts. A pdserver discovers what server port to use to communicate with another object through the namespace.
