5. Radiator configuration Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

Before Radiator will accept connections from Radar, it must be properly configured to include a <Monitor> clause. If there is no <Monitor> clause in the Radiator configuration file, Radar will not be able to connect to and monitor that Radiator.
For more extensive details on options for the <Monitor> clause, see the Radiator reference manual. However, below is a minimal <Monitor> clause that will permit some initial testing. It will permit Radar to connect from anywhere to the default TCP port of 9048, using the username `mikem' and password `fred'.
        Username mikem
        Password fred
You can control the username, password, authentication method and much more with parameters in the <Monitor> clause. See the Radiator reference manual for more details.
If you change your Radiator configuration, you will need to restart Radiator before the new configuration comes into effect.
