The [Gateways] section of the configuration parameter file contains entries for each External Language Gateway configured on the InterSystems IRIS® data platform instance.

The fields for a remote server are as follows:

  1. Type (required) — Type of the Gateway Server. For remote connections, this is set to Remote.

  2. Server (required) — IP address or name of the machine where the server is located. The maximum length is 256 characters; is the default.

  3. Port (required) — TCP port number for communication between the server and InterSystems IRIS.

Changing This Parameter

On the External Language Servers page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Connectivity > External Language Servers), click Create External Language Server and select Remote for Server Type.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change Remote Server in the Config.GatewaysOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
