-- PVX Plus Technologies PxPlus Client
Server has been assigned a registered
port address of 4093 by the Internet
Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
IANA is the
international organization that oversees
the assignment of IP addresses; DNS root
zone management, and other Internet
protocol assignments. IANA is operated by
the Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers (ICANN) based in the
United States whose responsibility is to
oversee the administration and standards
used within the Internet.
what does this mean to you?
registration of PVX Plus CS is official
recognition of the existence of the
protocols used for communication between
the client and host processes of the
PxPlus Client Server. More importantly to
you, the dealer, is that port 4093 is now
officially recognized for use by the
PxPlus Client Server protocol and, as
such, should not be used by any other
port 10000 has been used as the default
port for NThost, PVX Plus Simple CS, and
the Application Servers. Unfortunately,
this port is registered for use by the
Network Data Management Protocol and used
by the Veritas backup software. This lead
to potential conflicts with these IANA
PVX Plus CS assigned a registered port
number, the chance of conflicts is
greatly reduced. This not only will help
with systems configurations, but will
also provide a greater degree of
interoperability with other applications
on the host system.
the currently registered port assignments
number will soon be rolled out by various
manufacturers into the standard port
assignment list found on most Unix /
Linux systems making the PxPlus Client
Server port number an integral part of
the respective OS environment.
next few months, PxPlus will move towards
standardizing on this new default port
number and away from using port 10000. We
will try, wherever possible, to make this
transition effortless to you, your
application logic, and your clients.
Technologies wishes to thank IANA for
accepting its registration of the
protocol and providing us this
opportunity to serve our clients better.
