How to configure AppSocket

To add an AppSocket protocol, in the user interface, go to Configure / Port settings.

Use Select Port Type to Add to show the list of available protocols.

Pick AppSocket from the list:

Once you've select AppSocket, click the "Add Port" button:

Next, make these changes:

  1. change the Port setting if needed
  2. change the Timeout setting if you prefer
  3. select one of your existing queues using the droplist, or add a queue. Either way, AppSocket requires a valid queue to exist before it can receive the job. If the queue doesn't exist, AppSocket will create a queue called "appsocket-queue" and put jobs there.

  4. Changing the serial number is optional. There is no reason to leave it blank because that could potentially interfere with an application.
