Next, make these changes:
- change the Port setting if needed
- change the Timeout setting if you prefer
- 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.

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