Transporting to a Private Transport Directory


If a system for which a central transport host is configured is not supposed to transport a central transport directory, then override the default values for this system.


  • Configuring a private transport directory for all systems of a host:

If all the systems of a host access a common transport directory, you can override the transport host specified in the domain name server locally.

Enter the following in the local file %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts :

<IP address of private
transport host>

<TCP/IP name of private
transport host>


The following is an example of an entry in the file %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts :



End the file hosts with a blank line.

  • Configuring a private transport directory for one system of a host:

Set the parameters DIR_TRANS and transdir to the new transport directory for the single system.
