QueueProxy for MSMQ

QueueProxy is a small piece of software that can be run on destination machine. QueueExplorer communicates with QueueProxy remotely instead of using standard MSMQ connection, which is often hard to set up because of permission/firewall issues.

Also, when QueueExplorer connects to QueueProxy, there are no remote Limitations.

You can run QueueProxy only when needed, or constantly as a service. The user account under which QueueProxy runs must have correct MSMQ access rights.

Download

You can download QueueProxy from Cogin web site:

QueueProxy port

QueueProxy listens on port 39010. That port should be allowed in firewall in order to receive connections from QueueExplorer. Install.bat which installs service also adds firewall rule.

Run QueueProxy on demand

Just run QueueProxy.exe by double clicking it. Alternatively, run it from command prompt and you’ll see some logging info in console.

Run QueueProxy as a service

To run QueueProxy as a Windows service, install it first from command line, then start it:

QueueProxy.exe install
QueueProxy.exe start

Or run Install.bat, which will also run firewall rule.
