property %isTCPEventDevice as %Boolean [ InitialExpression = 0 , Transient ];
Property methods: %isTCPEventDeviceDisplayToLogical(), %isTCPEventDeviceGet(), %isTCPEventDeviceIsValid(), %isTCPEventDeviceLogicalToDisplay(), %isTCPEventDeviceNormalize(), %isTCPEventDeviceSet()
property EventDevice as %String;
The event device name
Property methods: EventDeviceDisplayToLogical(), EventDeviceGet(), EventDeviceIsValid(), EventDeviceLogicalToDisplay(), EventDeviceLogicalToOdbc(), EventDeviceNormalize()
property EventPort as %Integer;
The event device port number
Property methods: EventPortDisplayToLogical(), EventPortGet(), EventPortIsValid(), EventPortLogicalToDisplay(), EventPortNormalize(), EventPortSet()
property IPAddress as %String;
IP address to connect to. This property is null if it is in listening mode
Property methods: IPAddressDisplayToLogical(), IPAddressGet(), IPAddressIsValid(), IPAddressLogicalToDisplay(), IPAddressLogicalToOdbc(), IPAddressNormalize(), IPAddressSet()
property IPDevice as %String;
The TCP device name
Property methods: IPDeviceDisplayToLogical(), IPDeviceGet(), IPDeviceIsValid(), IPDeviceLogicalToDisplay(), IPDeviceLogicalToOdbc(), IPDeviceNormalize(), IPDeviceSet()
property IPPort as %Integer;
IP Port
Property methods: IPPortDisplayToLogical(), IPPortGet(), IPPortIsValid(), IPPortLogicalToDisplay(), IPPortNormalize(), IPPortSet()
property IsConnected as %Boolean [ InitialExpression = 0 ];
Boolean to indicate if the TCP device is connected
Property methods: IsConnectedDisplayToLogical(), IsConnectedGet(), IsConnectedIsValid(), IsConnectedLogicalToDisplay(), IsConnectedNormalize(), IsConnectedSet()
property IsSpawnedJob as %Boolean [ InitialExpression = 0 ];
Boolean to indicate if the current job is spawned with TCP device
Property methods: IsSpawnedJobDisplayToLogical(), IsSpawnedJobGet(), IsSpawnedJobIsValid(), IsSpawnedJobLogicalToDisplay(), IsSpawnedJobNormalize(), IsSpawnedJobSet()
property JobPerConnection as %Boolean [ InitialExpression = 1 ];
Spawn a new Job to handle each incoming TCP connection. Allows simultaneous handling of multiple connections.
Property methods: JobPerConnectionDisplayToLogical(), JobPerConnectionGet(), JobPerConnectionIsValid(), JobPerConnectionLogicalToDisplay(), JobPerConnectionNormalize(), JobPerConnectionSet()
property LocalInterface as %String (MAXLEN = 250);
In a multi-homed system, specify which network interface the TCP connection should go through. An empty value means to use any interface.
To be able to bind to IPv6 interfaces you may need to enable IPv6 in your Ensemble instance. This is done in the System Management Portal under System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Startup, by editing the IPv6 setting.
Property methods: LocalInterfaceDisplayToLogical(), LocalInterfaceGet(), LocalInterfaceIsValid(), LocalInterfaceLogicalToDisplay(), LocalInterfaceLogicalToOdbc(), LocalInterfaceNormalize(), LocalInterfaceSet()
property PrincipalDevice as %String;
Store the principal device of the current process
Property methods: PrincipalDeviceDisplayToLogical(), PrincipalDeviceGet(), PrincipalDeviceIsValid(), PrincipalDeviceLogicalToDisplay(), PrincipalDeviceLogicalToOdbc(), PrincipalDeviceNormalize(), PrincipalDeviceSet()
property QSize as %Integer (MAXVAL = 1000, MINVAL = 0) [ InitialExpression = 100 ];
How many incoming connections should the OS hold open until the Business Service processes them.

The default value is 100 and the maximum allowed value is 1000.
However, the maximum incoming connections the OS can hold open until the Business Service processes them depends on the TCP implementation.

Set to 0 if only one connection at a time is expected and subsequent connections ought to be refused immediately by the OS.

Note: If QSize is 0 a client attempting to connect will be refused connection by the operating system (RST,ACK) if the Business Service is processing a previous incoming connection.
This could lead to a scenario where a client is connected to the Business Service but disconnects and attempts to reconnect again in the brief period before the listening socket is re-opened by the Business Service and the client does not retry to connect as a result.

Property methods: QSizeDisplayToLogical(), QSizeGet(), QSizeIsValid(), QSizeLogicalToDisplay(), QSizeNormalize(), QSizeSet()
property SSLConfig as %String (MAXLEN = 350);
The name of an existing SSL/TLS system configuration to use (Secure Socket Layer / Transport Layer Security), which can be configured in the System Management Portal under System Administration > Security.

If your SSL Configuration requires you to supply a password for the local private key file, specify it in the Private key password property of the SSL/TLS Configuration.

Property methods: SSLConfigDisplayToLogical(), SSLConfigGet(), SSLConfigIsValid(), SSLConfigLogicalToDisplay(), SSLConfigLogicalToOdbc(), SSLConfigNormalize(), SSLConfigSet()
property TCPReadTimeout as %Integer;
Indicate number of seconds to wait before calling OnDeviceTimeout
Property methods: TCPReadTimeoutDisplayToLogical(), TCPReadTimeoutGet(), TCPReadTimeoutIsValid(), TCPReadTimeoutLogicalToDisplay(), TCPReadTimeoutNormalize(), TCPReadTimeoutSet()
