Perforce 2012.1: Command Reference



P4POPTIONS
Description
Set Perforce Proxy options for a Windows service.
Usage Notes
Used by
Client?
Used by
Server?
Can be set in P4CONFIG file?
Value if not Explicitly Set
Notes
For example, if you normally run the Proxy with the command
p4p -p 1999 -t mainserver:1666
you can set the P4POPTIONS variable for the Windows proxysvc to run with
p4 set -S "Perforce Proxy" P4POPTIONS="-p 1999 -t mainserver:1666"
When you run P4P under the "Perforce Proxy" service, the Proxy will listen to port 1999 and communicate with the Perforce Server at mainserver:1666.
Most installations do not need to use P4POPTIONS, because there are already environment variables associated with most p4p flags; in the example shown above, you can use P4PORT and P4TARGET. Use P4POPTIONS when you need to call p4p with flags for which there are no corresponding environment variables, and when you are doing so within the context of a Windows service.
For more information on setting up a Perforce Proxy, see the Perforce System Administrator's Guide.
