Configure Port used by Capture to connect to SQL server

308541

Question / Problem: 

Is it possible to configure another port to be used by Kofax and SQL server?

Answer / Solution: 

The SQL Browser Service typically takes care of informing clients which SQL Server port to use for a SQL Instance. This runs on UDP port 1434. If the service is not running or UDP port 1434 is blocked, you can modify the ACConfig.xml file to include the Kofax Capture SQL instance port number, thus informing clients how to reach the instance.

 

Add the port number after the server name separated by a comma, as shown below:

SERVERNAME, PORT\KOFAX

or 

SERVERNAME\KOFAX,PORT

 

EXAMPLE1:

    <StandardInstance>SERVERNAME,9876\KofaxCap2014</StandardInstance>

 

EXAMPLE2:

    <SqlServerInstance>SERVERNAME\KOFAX,1234</SqlServerInstance>
