configuring Jazz server to listen on port 80 or 443


Gary Dang (59328553) | asked Jan 22 '08, 5:29 p.m.
In a hosted environment, the RTC user would be allowed to communicate to the Jazz server on either port 80 or 443. However, I noticed that some of the reports need to talk to the server on port 9443 or something like that.

Can you confirm what the port requirements are that we need to open in order for the user to use all the RTC Eclipse or web clients successfuly?

Also, how do I change the default ports that the Jazz web server is listening on?

it depends how you setup your server and how you secured the web
application

For instance, you can specify the http port and https port in your server
(check the tomcat of WebSphere manual)
Then you can prevent connection on specific port (same, check the
application server manual or the web server manual)

Finally, if the application is secured, you can connect to the port 80
which would redirect it to the https port and then prompt you for a
userid password either using form loging (if you did not modify the
web.xml of jazz) or using basic authentication (if you modified the
web.xml)

This is the theory...now, you are saying...

"However, I noticed that
some of the reports need to talk to the server on port 9443 or
something like that."

Could you elaborate on it ? Maybe it is normal ? maybe the service is
behind the /secure/* URL under Jazz and thus, if the application server
is secured, it would tell the application server to redirect you to the
https port as the default of the jazz application is 'confidential' thus
using SSL ?

Or maybe it is a bug :) Let us know the URL of the service that needs
9443


Hope this heps :) cheers

I am getting this error when I tried to use RTC web client (when clicking on the log in link in upper right). If I use browser on the server itself. It works fine. Any idea?

Access Denied (connect_method_denied)


Your request attempted a CONNECT to a port "9443" that is not permitted by default.
This is typically caused by an HTTPS URL that uses a port other then the default of 443.
