Configuring push notifications

A push notification is a special message that is sent from the QAnywhere server to a QAnywhere client when a message arrives at the server message store that is destined for that client. The push notification is sent by a program called the Notifier, which runs on the server, and is received by a program called the Listener, which runs on the client. Push notifications are sent via a gateway. When the client receives the push notification, it initiates message transmission to receive messages waiting at the server or it takes some custom action.

Notifiers, Listeners and gateways are preconfigured to work in QAnywhere without any modification. In rare circumstances, you may want to configure them. Also, there are some Notifier settings that you may want to change. See:

You can disable push notifications and so not use Notifiers or Listeners. See -push option.

For information about the client's response to a push notification, see Determining when message transmission should occur on the client.
