Controlling Caché Startup Behavior On Windows

Whether or not there is an icon in the system tray, you can always control a Caché instance via the Start, Programs and Caché menu choices.


Change Caché Start To Manual

From the Start menu, select Programs, Administrative Tools, then Services. On some systems, Administrative Tools is found in Start, Settings, Control Panel.

From the Service window, select the item called, “Caché Controller for <instance name>”, where <instance name> is the name you assigned to the Caché you just installed.

From the Action menu, choose Properties, and change the Startup Type to Manual. Click OK.

Remove The Cube From The System Tray

You can choose to temporarily or permanently remove the Cube from the system tray. For information, see Removing the Cube from the System Tray in the “Using Caché on Windows” chapter of the Caché System Administrator's Guide.

Enabling Telnet

Caché has the capability of communicating with a terminal shell via the telnet protocol. However, when Caché is first installed, the telnet facility is turned off as a security measure. Telnet can be turned on by following these steps:

Start the Management Portal

Caché is administered via a browser-based interface known as the Management Portal. Make sure the Caché instance you installed is running. Then, start the portal.

On Windows Systems

Left-click on the Caché Cube in the system. From the menu, choose Management Portal.

Configure Telnet

When installed, Caché assumes telnet communications will take place on the default port, 23, specified by the Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA). If you wish to change this port assignment, choose Configuration from the System Administration column. In the following page, from the Additional Settings column select Device Settings.

In the System, Configuration, Device Settings page that displays, choose Telnet. The Telnet parameters are shown in the System, Configuration, Device Settings, Telnet Settings page that displays allows you to modify the settings; for information about the settings, see Telnet Settings in the “Device Settings” chapter of the Caché Additional Configuration Settings Reference. Click Save to save the new settings. When you have finished, return to the Home page.

Enable Telnet

When the portal Home page displays, choose Security Management from the System Administration column.

In the new page, choose Services from the Security Definitions column. This displays a table of the available Caché services and their respective status. For the table entry named, %Service_Telnet, if the Enabled column has the value “No”, click on the %Service_Telnet name.

The System, Security Management, Services, Edit Service page that displays allows you to modify the properties of the telnet service. The meaningful entries are:

  • Service enabled:

    Checking this box will enable the service so you can connect to Caché via telnet.

  • Unauthenticated

    Checking this box means that anyone can connect via telnet as long as they know the IP address of the host on which this Caché instance is installed.

  • Password

    Check this box if you wish to require operating system authentication (userid and password) of users attempting to connect to this Caché instance.

The remaining settings are for users of more advanced security features. When you have made you selections, click the Save button.
