    I don’t think so. Is there a reason why you’re not assigning a port number? You could pick a known value, then there wouldn’t be any issues.
    We had some code that would dynamically set the server port, but only after it determined that the port wasn’t already in use. This would prevent Omnis from hanging on startup waiting for the port to become available.

    Hi there,

    In Studio 10.2 I use the following line of code to obtain the port the server is listening on:-

    Calculate ip_port as $modes.$dotoolmethod(kEnvToolBrowser,160)

    You can also use “$prefs.$serverport” to obtain the static port, but that is not reliable when using Dynamic Port assignment.

    Hi Stefano,

    You should be able to use $modes.$serverport to get the resolved serverport.
