TCP/IP Collection Agent

The TCP/IP collection agent allows data to be collected and inserted into a workflow, using the standard TCP/IP protocol. Several connections at a time are allowed. It is also possible to send responses back to the source in the form of a bytearray, or in the case of several connections, as a UDR containing a response field. All response handling is done through APL commands.

The TCP/IP collection agent supports IPv4 and IPv6 environments.

A TCP/IP workflow may be configured to send responses to the source

Upon activation, the collector binds to the defined port and awaits connections to be accepted. Note the absence of a Decoder in the workflows. The collector has built-in decoding functionality and supports any format as defined in the Ultra Format Editor.
