Application Configuration

CCI Client/Server applications use the CCI Server Name and Machine Name parameters to enable the CCI Client to specify the CCI Server with which to communicate.

The CCI Server identifies itself on the network by using the Server Name parameter. The CCI Client also specifies the CCI Server using the Server Name. Additionally, if it only wants to find this Server running on a particular location within the UNIX machine, it needs to specify the Machine Name parameter.

In other protocols Machine Name is used to specify the individual machine hosting a service, with CCINAMPU Machine Name is used to denote the directory location of the service's listening Named Pipe, as such within a single UNIX system there may be several Services using the same Server Name but residing in different areas of the system.
