6. Configure management/REST services and administrative credentials.
Management host/IP - The IP address that management service should listen on. The IP address 0.0.0.0 is a special address that instructs service to listen on all available network interfaces.
Management port - The port that management service should listen on. Default port is 10880.
REST HTTP host/IP - The IP address that REST web service should listen on. The IP address 0.0.0.0 is a special address that instructs service to listen on all available network interfaces.
REST HTTP port - The port that REST web service should listen on. Default port is 11880.

7. Set allocated application memory. Minimum allocated memory is 1024 with recommended value of 2048MB or more for servers under heavy load.
8. Launch MFT Server Manager to configure your server.
9. Start the MFT Server Service. Service will start automatically following installation. If service is not started then you may start it manually as root user using the ./start_service.sh command from a terminal shell prompt.
In order to have service start automatically upon system reboot edit the /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.jscape.MFTServer.plist file and set the value for the OnDemand parameter to false.

netstat -a | grep 10880
netstat -a | grep 11880
where 10880 is the listening port for MFT Server Service, and 11880 is listening port for REST web service.
