Configure your work and report server ports so the DetectIt graphical client can be used

Follow these steps:

  1. Ensure you are signed on as the ALERT profile.
  2. On the command line, type: WRKDTITCP.
  3. Check whether a 'product' called DTIE is present.
  4. If it is not present, take F6 to 'Add'.
  5. Enter a 1 against DTIE and press ENTER twice (ensure that the port number is the same as defined in the Graphical client)
  6. Repeat the above steps for a product called DTIERPT - the reports server
  7. From the command line, enter STRALERT to start the DetectIT subsystems and plus series servers. NOTE - if the DetectIT subsystems are already started they will need to be ended before the STRALERT.
