@cindex @env{EMACS_SERVER_FILE} environment variable
When you start the Emacs server (by calling @code{server-start}),
Emacs creates a file with information about the TCP connection to the
server: the host where Emacs runs, the port where it listens for
@code{emacsclient} requests, and the authentication string to use for
the connection. @code{emacsclient} uses this information if it needs
to connect to the server via TCP. By default, this TCP configuration
file is placed in the @file{~/.emacs.d/server/} directory@footnote{
On MS-Windows, if @env{HOME} is not set or the TCP configuration file
cannot be found there, Emacs in addition attempts to find the file in
the @file{.emacs.d/server/} subdirectory of the directory pointed
to by the @env{APPDATA} environment variable, which is a user-specific
directory for application data files. This is similar to what Emacs
does on MS-Windows to search for the user's @file{.emacs} file.}
; you can
direct @code{emacsclient} to use a different file with the @samp{-f
@var{file}} or @samp{--server-file=@var{file}} option, or by defining
the @env{EMACS_SERVER_FILE} environment variable that points to the
non-default TCP configuration file.
