How to choose what proxy Eikon or Workspace chooses when launched

I am having issues with the ports chosen by the Eikon and/or Workspace Desktop Applications. I was looking at way to work around the port 9000 chosen automatically by the app, and searched for info on your sites (including here and here); but now I think it might be easier picking the port that the app's proxy would use; is that possible?

FYI: I'm working on using the RD Lib. for Python with the desktop session.

Hi @danieluphromes

I just checked to see if there is a way to override the 'port' specification and while there is, I found a problem that the development team will look at.

That being said, you really should not need to do this. What I would recommend is for you to do the following:

  1. Shutdown Workspace, Eikon, or both.
  2. Manually delete the .portInUse file from this directory: %APPDATA%/Refinitiv/Data API Proxy. Note: Assuming you are running on Windows
  3. Restart Workspace - the restart will create the .portInUse file
  4. Try your application again - the library is designed to pull out the port number within the above file.

Hi @danieluphromes ,


You can choose the port with these steps:


1.Find the Refinitiv Workspace or Eikon app shortcut used on your machine:

2.Add the port you would like in the target in this way : "path to Eikon or Workspace.exe" --sxs-port=9100

In this example, I made it so that the Eikon App uses proxy 9100.
