When setting up the configuration of the swNotificationServer, it can be beneficial to test the configuration parameters. Systemite can provide a swTestNotificationServer application which is useful during initial set-up or subsequent modifications. To obtain the tool, contact support@systemite.se.


The application has an interface where all configuration parameters can be set manually. Alternatively, you can enter the configuration in a swNotificationServer.ini and make sure that it is placed in the same location as the swTestNotificationServer executable.


Each field in the test notification GUI has a corresponding entry in the swNotificationServer.ini file. They are described more in-depth in Configuring the SystemWeaver Notification Server:

Use of Domain Names During Testing

To avoid misdiagnosis during testing, avoid using domain names such as 'company.com','acompany.com', 'user.com' and similar made-up names as these domains do exist and may be identified as spam. The following domain names are reserved by the Internet Engineering Task Force for use in documentation and examples. They are not available for registration. Therefore, they can safely be used:

  • example.com
  • example.net
  • example.org
