Managing the probe over a telnet connection

When using the probe with IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus V7.3.1 (or earlier), there is a command line interface (CLI) that you can use to manage the probe over a Telnet connection.

To use the CLI, ensure the following probe properties have suitable values:
  • CommandPort: Set this to the port number on the probe that Telnet connects through. The default port number is 7777.
  • CommandPortLimit: Set this to the maximum number of CLI connections that can be open concurrently.
Note: If you are running the probe on Netcool/OMNIbus V7.4.0 (or later) you can also manage the probe over an HTTP/HTTPS connection.
