To launch a server on the remote host

Restriction: You must have Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components installed on the remote machine.
Note: This process is part of the initial set up of Micro Focus Enterprise Developer UNIX Components on the remote host. The steps required to configure the remote server are included in the installation notes for Enterprise Developer and should be executed at installation time.

You can launch a server on the remote host by using the startrdodaemon script. This is the most common approach and it launches the server via a daemon process. With this script you are able to specify the port number to be used.

Important: If you are working with SQL applications, you must launch the remote host using a daemon.

If you want to launch a remote server which does not use the daemon process, you can configure a new connection by using the startrdoserver script in the New Connection dialog in the Remote Systems perspective in the Eclipse IDE.

To ensure that your connection to the server recognises changes in your configuration - for example, changing the value of an environment variable - you need to disconnect and then reconnect to the server. You can do this by restarting Eclipse or by disconnecting and reconnecting using the Connection context menu within the Eclipse IDE.
