Installing the server code
Starting the server
You can start the RDT communications server manually, or as a daemon.
To start the server as a daemon
Note that the server daemon does not enforce any user authentication. If you run the server daemon, any user can connect to the machine, work with the file system and run commands. Use of the server daemon on Windows systems is not recommended.
Simply double click the daemon.bat program to start a server daemon. You can edit the daemon.bat file to change properties for the daemon, like a specific daemon port to use or to force a port range for the server (in order to comply with firewalls).The server daemon runs on port 4075 by default. You can pass the optional daemonPort argument to force a different port if you want.
If your daemon runs behind a firewall, you may want to specify the optional serverPortRange argument to restrict selected server ports to the range given:
daemon.bat 4075 10000-10010
To start the server manually
Simply double click on the server.bat program to start the RDT server. The server will pick the first port available and print the port number. By default, it is usually 4033. You will then have to enter this port number in port property for the Files subsystem for your connection in the Remote System Explorer.
For security reasons, the server will only wait a limited time until a client connects (12000 seconds by default). In order to start the server with an exactly specified port or timeout, open a Windows command prompt and enter:
c: cd \rdt-server server.bat [port] [timeout]When you connect RDT to the server, the server will terminate as soon as you disconnect the client. The daemon, however, will not terminate.
