M-Files API 22.6.11519.0
ConnectWithoutLoginEx Method
MFilesServerApplication Object : ConnectWithoutLoginEx Method
Optional parameter. The time zone.

Protocol sequence name to be used in server communication. Supported protocols include:

The network address of a server computer. Either a human readable computer name or an IP address in dotted decimal format. The default value is "localhost".

Specifies the communication port on which the server listens for calls.

With the TCP/IP protocol, specify the TCP port that M-Files Server is listening to. Typically this value is 2266.

With the HTTPS protocol, specify the M-Files Server endpoint that will be used between the RPC Proxy and M-Files Server on the server side. Typically this value is 4466. Note that this parameter does not affect the port that the client uses to communicate with the server. Regardless of this setting, the client will always use the standard HTTPS port for communicating with the server.

With the LPC protocol, specify "MFServerCommon_F5EE352D-6A03-4866-9988-C69CEA2C39BF" to connect to the local M-Files Server instance regardless of its version. If multiple versions of M-Files Server are running on the same computer, the first instance that has started has been registered to listen to this endpoint. Alternatively, you can leave this parameter empty in order to connect to the exact same version of M-Files Server as the M-Files API version you are using. If you leave the Endpoint parameter empty with the LPC protocol, M-Files API uses a version-specific endpoint name to connect to M-Files Server.

The default endpoint for the gRPC protocol is 7766. With the local gRPC protocol, use the version of the M-Files Server instance you are connecting to as the endpoint value. For instance, 20.9.9403.0. Use an empty value for referring to the current installation.

The name of the client computer (the host name of the client). If empty, the system-supplied name of the local computer is used.
The name of the computer that the user attempts to connect to.
The specified client culture information. See also ClientCulture Property.
True if unmanaged content should be returned.
Description
Connects to the specified server without login. Use the ConnectWithoutLoginEx3 method for additional options.

Parameters
TimeZone
Optional parameter. The time zone.
ProtocolSequence

Protocol sequence name to be used in server communication. Supported protocols include:

  • "ncacn_ip_tcp" (TCP/IP protocol)
  • "ncacn_spx" (SPX protocol)
  • "ncalrpc" (local interprocess call, LPC)
  • "ncacn_http" (HTTPS)
  • "grpc" (gRPC)
  • "grpc-local" (local gRPC)
NetworkAddress
The network address of a server computer. Either a human readable computer name or an IP address in dotted decimal format. The default value is "localhost".
Endpoint

Specifies the communication port on which the server listens for calls.

With the TCP/IP protocol, specify the TCP port that M-Files Server is listening to. Typically this value is 2266.

With the HTTPS protocol, specify the M-Files Server endpoint that will be used between the RPC Proxy and M-Files Server on the server side. Typically this value is 4466. Note that this parameter does not affect the port that the client uses to communicate with the server. Regardless of this setting, the client will always use the standard HTTPS port for communicating with the server.

With the LPC protocol, specify "MFServerCommon_F5EE352D-6A03-4866-9988-C69CEA2C39BF" to connect to the local M-Files Server instance regardless of its version. If multiple versions of M-Files Server are running on the same computer, the first instance that has started has been registered to listen to this endpoint. Alternatively, you can leave this parameter empty in order to connect to the exact same version of M-Files Server as the M-Files API version you are using. If you leave the Endpoint parameter empty with the LPC protocol, M-Files API uses a version-specific endpoint name to connect to M-Files Server.

The default endpoint for the gRPC protocol is 7766. With the local gRPC protocol, use the version of the M-Files Server instance you are connecting to as the endpoint value. For instance, 20.9.9403.0. Use an empty value for referring to the current installation.

LocalComputerName
The name of the client computer (the host name of the client). If empty, the system-supplied name of the local computer is used.
LogicalTargetServer
The name of the computer that the user attempts to connect to.
ClientCulture
The specified client culture information. See also ClientCulture Property.
ReturnUnmanagedContent
True if unmanaged content should be returned.
