Regarding port number!

Hi,

Is it possible to have the same port number for WAS and ICM( internet communication manager) in a single SAP system?

do explain me what difference does it make if the SAP system (in mycase SAP BW 3.5) has two different port numbers for WAS and ICM.

Thank you,

Ravi

    Hello Ravi,

    As you must be aware ports are used by services. One port will be reserved for only one kind of service. So it makes sense to have different port numbers for your WAS and ICM. Please visit the following link for more information:

    Please award points for useful information.

    Regards.

    Hi

    Whether in SAP or any other similar product we can't have same port for two different services running on the same server.Its basically comes from the networking concept.

    Its like you can't keeping two swords in one sheath.
