Manually Configure the Client to Use a Runtime Server

If the MCS service agent and MCS cannot communicate, or if you haven't associated your task with an agent cluster in MCS, your task will get its configuration from the IMSClientConfig.xml file.

To manually configure the client
  1. You can either create the IMSClientConfig.xml file from scratch, or run your task once (it will fail) to create the file with default values, which you can then modify.

    The IMSClientConfig.xml file is located in the cfg directory, either in the location you specified as a system property (attachmate.home) or in the Java-provided location, user.home. On a Windows system, this is Documents and Settings/user login.

  2. Open the IMSClientConfig.xml in a text editor, and make the following modifications:

    Specify a run-time server to serve client applications from a remote server by typing the address without double slashes or protocol specification. For example, to specify a run-time server named "myServer":

    <Property Name = "serverAddress" Value = "myServer"/>

    The default port number for the server is 6900. You can change the port number by adding ":xxxx", (where xxxx is the port number), after the server name.
