Configure clients

You can configure many aspects of the behavior of a command-line client, including which server port it listens on, the current client workspace name, and how files are mapped from the depot to the client workspace.

In Helix Server, the word "client" can refer to either:

  • The client process — the running client binary (p4)
  • The client workspace — the location on your computer where you work on file revisions managed by Helix Server

This chapter discusses configuring both.
