Connect to control port

PresSTORE control port is used to perform low-level application server maintenance. It is not designed to be operated by end-users without explicit instructions of the Archiware tech support. It can be accessed using the "telnet" utility:

telnet localhost control_port

The only hostname you can use to connect to control port is localhost, as control port server listens only on the loopback network interface, for security reasons.

The control_port is the TCP/IP port where the command server is listening. The port number is calculated as follows:

control_port = presstore_web_server_port + 1000

The presstore_web_server_port is per default 8000. This may vary for your installation, since you can override it during the software installation.

The only user appointed to accessing the PresSTORE control port is the nsadmin user. Default password for this user is x (single small letter x). You can change the password of the control port user by editing file etc/srvconf.tcl file. Please note that you need to re-edit the file each time you install a software update (this little nuisance will be corrected in the future).

Example of connecting to the control port:

# telnet localhost 9000
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
login: nsadmin
Password: x
