Set CopiaFacts Message Service Options

$cfmsg nodename [IPaddress][ServiceOnly]
$cfmsg CFCP \\machinename [IPaddress]
$cfmsg CFMSG [IPaddress]

This command is used to specify override options for controlling the application with the specified nodename through the CopiaFacts Control Panel (CFCP).  When an override is needed, a separate command should be supplied for each nodename to be so controlled.

The address on this command specifies the NIC card from which messages to CFMSG will be sent. The default is to select a NIC card with an address in the same sub-net as address specified in CFMSG.INI.

The parameters on this command are used as follows:

nodenameThe name assigned in the CFHWL configurator for the COPIAFACTS engine node or the FFEXTERN document converter node.  Instead of a nodename, the special keywords CFCP and CFMSG may be used as described below.
//machinenameThe Windows machine name of the machine where this command is to apply when the CopiaFacts Control Panel (CFCP) is run there.
ServiceOnlywhen this keyword is present, it indicates that COPIAFACTS or FFEXTERN application cannot be controlled by the CopiaFacts Control Panel (CFCP) when running as a local Desktop application.  Instead, they can only be started using the normal desktop or start menu icons and controlled from the desktop.
IPaddresswhen an IPv4 address such as is present, this address will be used by the application to communicate with the CFMSG message center service.  This option is only required for a case where the machine running the application has multiple NIC cards or assigned addresses and you wish to select which one is to be used.  Normally the application will determine its own local IP address in the same sub-net in which CFMSG is located.

Normally none of these commands are needed.
