To edit WxConnectionManager configuration with user interface

To edit WxConnectionManager configuration manually

  1. In the install directory (C:\Program Files\WxTools by default), locate and open the file WxConnectionManager.ini. You easily find it by choosing Explore Install Directory from the Windows Start menu program group.
  2. Edit this file and enter sections telling WxConnectionManager where it can find all your WxListeners. Each section looks like this:
    [WxListener1] - The section name. This must always start with "WxListener...", e.g. "WxListener1", "WxListener2", "WxListener3"...
    Alias - Appears in the user interface but has no further significance.
    Server - The name or IP address of the computer running WxListener.
    Port - The TCP port you configured for WxListener.

  3. If WxConnectionManager is sharing a computer with WxListener, edit the .ini file to make them use different TCP ports.
  4. Make any other changes in the .ini file, e.g. the LogDirectory setting (enter something in the form "C:\WxTools\Logs").

Running WxConnectionManager

To run WxConnectionManager as a Windows Service
