    Exams software, TCP Ports issue

    I seem to remember when I installed Promissor ESMServer that It wouldn't run on the same server as QCA Testing due to them using the same ports. Is this still the case does anyone have them running on the same box?

    QCA was removed long ago, and if anyone asks me to install it again I will embed a chair in their skull.

    Did you change exam boards I thought you had no choice about what software you use?

    I'm currently cursing my way through a test QCA install to see if the problem is what I think it is (undocumented dependencies) and you can change the default ports on the Linux install at least. The promissor server is on an archived vm and I can't remember what it used.

    Since the QCA server can be changed (and creates a config file for workstations to use) that'd probably be your best bet.

    We trailed it, because we were told that eventually it would be mandatory for all tests.
    Then I updated the server, and so we told them we would be reinstalled at a later date when the tests started again. At that time it was decided that it was optional and not mandatory, and so we decided not to resume.

    All I know is we don't use it any more, and that's how I want to keep it.
