Configuring the server

The Perforce service is highly configurable and this is accomplished through the setting of server, client, and proxy configurables. Available configurables number in the hundreds, and it is probably best to set them as you continue to work with the server. This chapter limits itself to describing the configurables you might initially want to configure before you begin working with the server.

See also the p4 configure command and the server, client, and proxy Configurables in the Helix Core Command-Line (P4) Reference as well as the command-line output of p4 help configurables.
