Try using {} instead of () as in: -x tcpip{port=2440}

i am getting command not found if I try with {}

Ah, I'm looking at how our test gear works and I see I missed a subtle point. You have to put double quotes, as follows: -x "tcpip{port=2440}".

still the same and getting following message

-bash:ELF: command not found

OK. I googled the "ELF" error, and there is another subtle point. Your command line has ". " in front of the mlsrv10 path. This means that you are attempting to invoke an executable as a shell script. Remove the leading ". ".
