Question:  

 How to disable SSA (Secure Socket Adapter) protocol on the System Agent to use default AFM protocol?

Answer: 

 When the Agent is configured to use SSA protocol, the following line is set in the agentparm.txt file:

              communication.receiver.socket.main=Dylan

 If you prefer to get rid of SSA and use the default System Agent protocol, which is AFM, you have to:

    1.      Stop the agent.

    2.      Open the agentparm.txt file.

    3.      change the communication input port number:

                communication.inputport=port  (Default port number is 7520)

    4.     Change the socket type by deleting the line with:

            communication.receiver.socket.main=dylan

                   (Default socket type is AFM)

    5.      Save and close the agentparm.txt file.

    6.      Start the agent

 

Now the agent is configured to communicate using an AFM-enabled port number 7520

 

On Autosys, you have to change the port number of the System Agent to be the same as the above communication.inputport

 

    Specify one of the following subcommands in a JIL script or at the jil command line:

            If you are creating an agent machine definition:  insert_machine: machine_name

            If you are updating an existing agent machine definition:  update_machine: machine_name

            Then specify the port number:  port: port_number
