Enabling Server Override

The server can support override options for the servername, protocol, and machinename. As the server does not use a configuration file the override parameters are supplied using the mfcsmgr program. This generates a short exchange between the client and the server which processes the selected function.

The command line syntax for mfcsmgr is:

run mfcsmgr [-a] [-c nnnnn] [-d] [-i filename] 
		          [- m machine-name] [-p protocol] [-s server-name] 
            [-o m, machine-name] [-o p, protocol] [-o r] 
            [-o s, server-name] [-t] [-v]


-a Changes the authorisation password associated with the target server.
-c,nnnnn Sets the number of clients the server can support.
-d Deletes the local overide file (mfcsovrd.cfg) when the client exits.
-i filename Installs the specified file in the client's local directory when the client exits.
-m machine-name Specifies the name of the machine on which the target server is running. This is required if the same server-name is used on more than one platform.
-p protocol Specifies the communications protocol being used: TCP/IP (CCITC32), NetBEUI (CCINB32), Novell IPX (CCIIX32) or Dynamic Data Exchange (CCIDE32).
-s server-name Indicates a server-name other than the default (mfclisrv).
-o m,machine-name Specifies the machine-name on which the overriding is running.
-o p,protocol Uses this protocol to access the overriding server.
-o r Resets active override. Reverts to original settings.
-o s,server-name Overrides connections to the target server by directing them to this server.
-t Terminates the server
-v Displays the mfclient version number.

All the above flags can be specified with a - or /, and are not case-sensitive.
