Running more than one Centrex Proxy Server® on the same machine

This section will give you additional information in the case that you need to install and run more than one Centrex Proxy Server® instance on the same host machine. The process is simple and you can run as many proxy instances as you require.

Purchase a license for each instance you want to run:

Each installed image of the Centrex Proxy Server® must have its own product license installed. You can purchase additional licenses from the LanScape on line web store. Note: You do not need to re-download your product image.

Install each instance of the Centrex Proxy Server® to its own directory:

To make sure that the server applications do not interfere with one another, install each server into its own separate directory. The actual location that you install to does not matter. Just make sure all installed instances of your multiple server configuration are installed to their own unique installation directories.

Start each instance using the -f command line switch:

Normally the Centrex Proxy Server® will read configuration information from the Windows registry. When running multiple instances of the server, you must specify that configuration settings be restored and saved using a configuration file. Lets assume you want to run 2 instances of the server software on your host machine, in this case you could start each instance as follows:

"C:\Program Files\LanScape\Centrex Proxy1\CentrexProxy.exe" -f Proxy1.ini
"C:\Program Files\LanScape\Centrex Proxy2\CentrexProxy.exe" -f Proxy2.ini

The above startup command lines assume that you have installed 2 instances of the product. One to the "Centrex Proxy1" directory and the other to the "Centrex Proxy2" directory. All configuration settings will be maintained in the 2 *.ini files you specified on the command line.


If you run more than one instance of the server on the same host machine, you must make sure that the servers are configured properly such that they do not conflict with each other (i.e. network settings, log file names, etc).
