7.3 Listening Paths

When Gateway Administrator is run for the first time, the InfoConnect path used to receive incoming client connections is automatically created. (This path is named ATM_TCP_1 by default.) When the Gateway service is running, by default, five instances of this listening path are active, listening for incoming connections. Depending upon the number of anticipated client connections, it may be necessary to increase the default number of listening paths by changing the Number Listening on the Translations page.

Configuration translations are the rules for mapping listening paths to host paths. When you create a configuration translation, you specify which host path to use to establish a connection with the host. If a host path does not already exist, the configuration translation wizard prompts you to create one.
