- Master host name
Name of the master host which will send alerts to the bcnualert agent. Automatic registration with this host will take place.
TCP port number for bcnu process on the master and on this host (normally 6666)
- Check Interval
How often communication with the master host is checked
- This PC's ID
How you want this pc to be identified, the name should be a valid unix filename format e.g.
John_Smith or TECH_SUPPORT_PC
- Enable Sound
Enable or disable the playing of a sound when an alert is received. There is also a button which allows you to choose your own .wav file to be played
Once you have made any changes, pressing the save button will update the configuration and save your entries to the windows registry
WARNING If you change the TCP port number, then you will need to restart bcnualert
