    I just finished the Level 1 training last week and now have to set up a new site.  In doing this I have a production site running and a thread on it listening to a port for data comming in (HL7) and routing it to another thread.

    I was wondering if instead of doing a loop-out of that data to a new site, could I setup a thread on that site and have it listen the same port?

    Pros? if possable.

    Cons?

      I don’t think you can have 2 threads listening to the same port, only one of them will connect. You need to do a site to site route.

      Bevan,

      If you just want a new destination for the source messages, create a new outbound thread and route the desired messages to it in the same process/site.

      If there is some other reason you might want to listen to the same port, clarify here and maybe we can assist.

      Jim,

      Thanks.  I was just thinking of avoiding the loopout/in type of connections.  No real imperative.  Just being lazy I guess.

      Bevan,

      I’m not sure what you mean by loop out but like Jim said, you can

      have multiple routes in the inbound thread pointing to many different outbound interfaces.

      This is known as “one to many” interfaces.

      Preferably you want to keep them in the same process.

                   outbound1

                 /

      inbound

                 

                   outbound2
