Operations

Operations is a top-level menu in SecureTransport and SecureTransport Edge.

Use the Operations menu of the Axway SecureTransport Administration Tool to initiate operator-driven actions, planned daily tasks, statistics, monitors, and responses to events.

Administration Tool server runs as an HTTPS server using port 444 by default. The Administration Tool server starts automatically each time a UNIX-based system starts. The installer includes a startup item in the system’s rc directory tree. On a Windows system, the server runs as a service.

You can also manually start the Administration Tool server by executing the following commands:

  • For UNIX, go to <FILEDRIVEHOME>/bin and run ./start_admin.
  • For Windows, go to <FILEDRIVEHOME>\bin\ and run start_admin.com.
Note The Administration Tool server reserves ports 8004 and 8005 to be used by the Java-based component. These ports are used strictly for internal communication within the Administration Tool and cannot be used for other purposes.
