Setup Linux Target Computer

Target Computer requirements

To deploy Service Oriented Architecture applications on a target computer using the support package, following requirements have to be met.


By default, port numbers 5555 and 5556 on target are used to communicate with the host. To modify the port numbers, update them in the <Support-Package-root>/toolbox/coder/linux/host/ContainerConfig.json file. You can get the support package root using the command:


Port number 22255 is reserved for use on target and hence the port is not configurable.

Steps to setup target

Use the Linux Runtime Manager application to connect, disconnect, add, remove, and update Linux target computers.

To connect to a target computer that is running the Linux operating system:

  1. Open the Linux Runtime Manager.

  2. In the Targets Tree pane, select Target Computers and click plus button to add a target computer. In Target Configuration section, enter details for the target computer.


    tgs = linux.Targets();
    tg = tgs.addTarget(<targetName>, <ipAddress>, <userName>, <password>);

  3. For a newly added target computer, enter the full path of the location at which you want to deploy the application using this command:

    tg.setDeploymentLocation(<Deployment location>);

  4. To deploy DDS applications configured with RTI Connext vendor, set the value of environment variable NDDSHOME_LINUX on host to the RTI Connext software folder path on Linux target machine.

    setenv('NDDSHOME_LINUX', '<Path for the software>')
    For example:
    setenv('NDDSHOME_LINUX', '/home/user/RTIDDS/glnxa64/rti_connext_dds-6.0.1_gcc7.3.0')

  5. Select a target and click the Linux Target > Connect To Target > Connect button.




    This step prompts you to provide a deployment location for the target computer if one is already not set.

  6. To update software on the target computer, select the target computer and click Linux Target > Connect To Target > Update Target.



  7. To disconnect the target computer, select the target computer and click Linux Target > Connect To Target > Disconnect.



  8. To completely remove the target computer files and its storage, use this command:


  9. To remove a target computer, select the target computer and click the delete button. This action removes the target computer from the Targets Tree, but the applications deployed to the target computer and its docker image still exist in storage.


    tgs.removeTarget(<Target Name>);

Using this application, you can connect to multiple target computers at the same time.
