What is the Notification Server?
The Notification Server is another helper service. It provides other servers with a means of sending notification and content to listening devices. It is responsible for knowing where the devices are, that is their current network address and for keeping a "Live connection" to the device to enable 2 way communications.
Configuring the Notification Server
|1.||Expand the configuration node in the navigation tree and select Servers and Groups. The action pane will display the configured servers.|
|2.||Right mouse click the server and select Properties from the pop-up menu.|
|3.||Select the Notification Server tab. It will highlight the currently active template, by default (Default Notification Server Template). We recommend that you do not change this. Click the Configuration Wizard button - with the magic wand icon.|
|4.||On the Welcome screen, make sure that the box Run the Notification Service is checked and then click the Next button.|
|5.||On the General Settings page, you can configure the TCP port that the Notification Server is listening for instructions on. Do not change this from 607 unless there are port conflicts.|
|6.||Also on the General Settings page, you can control whether or not the Notification Server communicates to the outside world via a proxy. In mSuite, this setting has no effect - it is provided only for backwards compatibility. In mSuite, the Notification Server uses TCP and communicates via the CMS - it does not communicate directly with the Proxy.|
|7.||Click Next to continue.|
|8.||On the completion page, you have the choice of saving the settings as a new template or updating the existing properties. You will normally update the existing properties - the default settings. Templates are advanced configuration and you should only use them if instructed by CommonTime support. |
|9.||Click Finish to complete the wizard.|
