Typically, you do not have to configure port numbers manually. The information service handles port configuration automatically. Use the default port of the information service to connect to the Open Agent. Then, the information service forwards communication to the port that the Open Agent uses. However, you can configure the information service port settings to avoid problems with a firewall by forcing communication on a specific port.
If necessary, change the port number that the Silk Test client or the application that you want to test uses to connect to the Open Agent.
Port settings include:
agent.vtadapter.port – Controls communication between Silk Test Workbench and the Open Agent when running tests.
agent.xpmodule.port – Controls communication between Silk Test Classic and the Agent when running tests.
agent.autcommunication.port – Controls communication between the Open Agent and the application that you are testing.
agent.rmi.port – Controls communication with the Open Agent and Silk4J.
agent.ntfadapter.port – Controls communication with the Open Agent and Silk4NET.
agent.heartbeat.port – Required to test with an Open Agent that is installed on a remote machine.
