Listeners provides an identity for that queue manager in the network.

In WebSphere MQ V6.0, listeners are WebSphere MQ objects defined on a queue manager.

Listeners can be created by using the WebSphere MQ Explorer or MQSC commands.

The listener listens on a particular port on the TCP/IP network. A port is a fundamental concept of TCP/IP networks.

There are a large range of ports that can be listened on by the network services provided by a machine. If you know that a network service is listening on a port suggested, choose a different port number.

If there is only one queue manager on a system, it is often chosen for this queue manager to listen on port 1414. This is the well-known port for WebSphere MQ.
