PROBLEM

Perhaps you have seen the option in Superprefs Editor or in Client Monitor about "Route server messages via boosters" and asked yourself what that was?


ENVIRONMENT

We know that when a client is talking to the FileWave server it does a check-in every so often (2min default). But how does it talk and what is said?

When we take a look at the Default TCP and UDP Port Usage for FileWave we see 20015 and 20017 (communications between client and server)


RESOLUTION

Basically server messages are the communications a client needs to work with the server. 

Below are a list of messages that could be send via the publish and routing services.

  • Checkin
  • Fileset properties and status
  • Software updates
  • Lock / Unlock client
  • Kiosk categories and item info
