Creating a Configuration File to Connect to a Server
If you want to connect to a Connect:Direct® server using the CLI, use the Logon Connection utility.
This utility can be used to run batch-oriented jobs. It enables you to identify the parameters necessary to connect to a server. It then saves this information to a configuration file. If you do not identify a directory, the file is saved in the root directory.
After you create the configuration file, invoke the CLI and include the -f parameter, to identify the location and file name for the configuration file. Then define a user ID and password in the Microsoft Windows setup utility.
To create the configuration file:
- Type the following command to run the LCU batch file:
where x:\directory is the location to save the configuration file and file name is the name of the configuration file.
- Enter the following information to identify the connection
parameters for the server:
- IP Address of the Connect:Direct server
- Port number of the Connect:Direct server
- User ID to use to connect to the server
- User password of the user ID used to connect to the server.
The information is automatically saved to the file you identified with the x:\directory\filename variable. If you do not enter this variable, the configuration file is saved in the root directory to the file called cddef.bin.
