Agent Communition - Ports

Discussion created by Jennifer_Jinhong_34 on Sep 23, 2015
Communication between the Agent and the Automation Engine are done through the CP's and PWP. With multiple CP processes running, the initial connection is done on CP1 and based on the load, it will switch to the CP with the lease amount of load. So the port range would be what you have defined in the UCSrv.ini file for the CPs.

The default port set in the Agent's .ini file, 2300, is the port on which the Agent communicates with other Agents for FileTransfers and the Job Messenger communicates with the Agent for status updates. The same port number can be used on multiple Agents as long as they are on different machines, otherwise, you'll see an error message in the Agent log about a port conflict.
