Ports in VDS

Dear experts,

I have few doubts regarding ports in VDS. Can you please guide me.

1. How to find what are the ports used and free ones.

2.How to change port number, if it is already set for the service. For example I created xml file and set the Port number, how to modify.

3. If a configeration file is deleted without stopping the service on port, how to stop that service and use that port.

Thank in Advance.

Warm Regards,

Jaya

    Jaya,

    Ports are configurable for each VDS configuration.  Note that like all IP related applications, each VDS setup can only use one port at at time.  Default is 389.

    I typically use 389 if there's no other LDAP software setup, other wise, 1389 or something in the 700x range.

    To change the port, load your configuration and navigate down the tree to Deployments, LDAP deployments / main_listener.  You'll see the Port number option in the Deployment tab.

    Note you will need to either stop and start the configuration or click the update button to have the change take affect.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Matt

    On Windows, via Administrative Tools \ Services..

    (on rare occasions) I've used "Sc delete" from command line to remove the services. As it removes the Windows service you can also remove dispatchers if needed.

    • Jaya, if you double click on the Virtual Directory Server node in your configuration you can see if the configuration is running as an application or a Service.  You will probably want to double check the services.msc configuration if you're running Windows (don't remember how to do this in Linux.
