Showing James Who's Boss

You can administer James via its Remote Manager Service. (By default, this service listens to port 4555.) The following syntax can be used to administer James:

telnet localhost 4555

If you're accessing James remotely, simply replace localhost with the appropriate IP address/hostname.

The default login and password for the Remote Manager Service are root and root, respectively. (You change them in the config.xml file.) Look for the section <administrator_accounts> and modify the section with a secure user name and password combination.

James ships with an embedded help facility that you can access using the HELP command.

Users can be added to James using the following syntax:

adduser [username] [password]

For example, I added the user kulvir with this syntax:

adduser kulvir mypassw0rd
