Section 10 The LISTSERV TCPGUI Interface
The TCPGUI interface is the part of LISTSERV that listens for TCP/IP connections coming into the LISTSERV port on the LISTSERV host. To use the TCPGUI interface, you set up TCPGUI, then you send commands to it through TCP/IP. You have two options for sending commands to LISTSERV through TCP/IP:
- Use the lcmdx program from your operating system’s command line, or
- Write a program to send the commands, using the code for lcmdx as a guide.
Most simple commands can be sent directly through the TCPGUI interface, but some advanced operations require special handling.
