Installing AmtImporter

This service will accept the uploads from other datatex software.

  • IRCExporter
  • VoipSweeper
  • Teams recorder
  • AmtClient

Run the install script in /root/MyUpdates/amtimpoter folder and then run it again to upgrade.
The first run should extract all the required files and the second run of the files should just upgrade the service, if it is not already on the latest version.

mkdir -p /root/MyUpdates/amtimporter
cd /root/MyUpdates/
cd amtimporter
bash ./
bash ./


  • Check that the default ports for SSL connection and HTTP connection is set to 5334 and 5081.

vi /opt/datatex/amtimporter/amtimporter.ini

Some older sites used SSLPORT=5334 but the default should be 27443


AmtClient will connect to port 27443 to upload screenshots and notes.

  • Make sure this value is not set:

  • This version no longer uses the Firebird DB.
  • INI files now control the allowed devices


1=DEVICE_STATUS_OKAY - allowed to upload (default for first ircexporter, default for amtclients)
2=DEVICE_STATUS_PERMANENTLY_BLOCKED - will never be allowed to upload
3=DEVICE_STATUS_TEMPORARILY_BLOCKED - no uploads for now (default for new ircexporter, except for first one)
  1. The GUID will indicate the software that connected.
  2. The =1 means that the client software is allowed to connect with this status: DEVICE_STATUS_OKAY
  3. If you want to disable a client set the value to one of the other STATUS values.
