CommuniGate Pro ACAP Module
The CommuniGate ADAP module implements an ACAP server for TCP/IP networks.
The ACAP protocol allows a client (mailer) application to connect
to the Server computer and upload and download the application preferences,
configuration settings and other datasets (such as personal address books).
Application Configuration Access Protocol
Configuring the ACAP module
Use a Web browser to configure the ACAP module. Open the Access page in the
WebAdmin Settings section.
- Use this setting to specify what kind of information the ACAP
module should put in the Server Log. Usually you should use the Major
(password modification reports) or Problems (non-fatal errors)
levels. But when you experience problems with the ACAP module, you may want
to set the Log Level setting to Low-Level or All Info:
in this case protocol-level or link-level details will be recorded in the
System Log as well.
The ACAP module records in the System Log are marked with the ACAP
- When you specify a non-zero value for the TCP/IP Channels setting,
the ACAP module creates a so-called "listener" on the specified port. The module starts
to accept all ACAP connections that mail clients establish in order to updates
password data. This setting is used to limit
the number of simultaneous connections the ACAP module can accept. If there
are too many incoming connections open, the module will reject new connections,
and the user should retry later.
If the number of channels is set to zero, the ACAP module closes the listener and releases
(unbinds from) the TCP port.
- By default, the ACAP module Listener accepts clear text connections on the
TCP port 674. Follow the
listener link to tune the ACAP Listener.
The ACAP module supports the STARTTLS command that allows client mailers to
establish a connection in the clear text mode and then turn it into a secure connection.
