If you need to change the ports that the plugin uses to communicate with the proxy service, you can do so from the proxy configuration file.

What you should know

The plugin and the proxy service use two different ports to communicate with each other: the configuration port (Proxy Port) and the communication port (Symmetry Service Port).

The default value of the configuration port is 1312. If this port is blocked, you must change the port in the Properties tab of the plugin role and in the proxy configuration file. If the default port is not blocked, you can change the port number directly from the Amag Symmetry Proxy Configuration Page, and then configure the port number in the Properties tab of the plugin role to match, instead of changing it from the proxy configuration file.

The default value of the communication port is 1313. You can change the port number from the Amag Symmetry Proxy Configuration Page or in the proxy configuration file.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the AMAG Symmetry server.
  2. Browse to the AppData folder of the user running the proxy.

    The following file paths are examples only, and might vary depending on your setup.

    The default path for 32-bit systems is C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Genetec_Inc\Genetec.Plugins.Amag.Symm_StrongName_xrrtmnhcrpehd0wev5qif0tnbk1aynrl\<Current_Proxy_version>

    The default path for 64-bit systems is C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Genetec_Inc\Genetec.Plugins.Amag.Symm_StrongName_xrrtmnhcrpehd0wev5qif0tnbk1aynrl\<Current_Proxy_version>

    NOTE:
  3. Open the user.config file in a text editor.
  4. Find the following lines and change the Proxy Port value:
    <setting name="ProxyPort" serializeAs="String">
    <value>1312</value>
    </setting>
  5. Find the following lines and change the Symmetry Service Port value:
    <setting name="SymmetryServicePort" serializeAs="String">
    <value>1313</value>
    </setting>
  6. Save the file, and then close it.
  7. Restart the AMAG Symmetry proxy service for the changes to take effect.

Results

The plugin and the AMAG Symmetry proxy service can now establish a connection.
