Setting up the WMQ Connection server connection channel from the Management Console
Setting up the WMQ Connection server connection channel from the Management Console enables you to create the TrueSight Middleware Administrator (TSMA) WMQ Connection for a single queue manager. This method is useful for troubleshooting or in a smaller development or test environment.

|Channel Name||Server Connection channel name used for the connection of TSMA to the queue manager as a client|
|Listener Port||Port for the client connections to use for the queue manager|
(Optional) When provided, and the server connection channel is created, a channel authentication record is added to restrict connections to those originating from this IP address
It should be the IP address where TSMA was installed.

|Listener Port Range Minimum||The beginning of a port range from which a listener port is chosen.|
|Listener Port Range Maximum||The end of a port range form which a listener port is chosen.|
