Notes

The format of P4PORT on the Perforce client is host:port, or port by itself if both the Perforce client and server are running on the same host.

If you specify both an IP address and a port number in P4PORT, the Perforce server ignores requests from any IP addresses other than the one specified in P4PORT.

To use the default value perforce with a Perforce server, define perforce as an alias to the host running the server in /etc/hosts on UNIX, or in %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts on Windows, or use DNS.

Port numbers must be in the range 1024 through 32767.
