7.7 Specifying the port

By default the LispWorks ORB uses port 3672.

To specify a known other port, pass it via the ORB initarg -ORBport on the command line, for example:

my-corba-server -ORBport 12345

To allow the system to choose a port, pass the special value 0:

my-corba-server -ORBport 0

The ORB initarg -IIOPport is an alias for -ORBport.

Note: it is possible to run only one ORB instance at a time in LispWorks. So for concurrent LispWorks ORBs, you will need to run multiple images.
