Security Information

VMware is committed to providing products and solutions that allow you to assess the security of your information, secure your information infrastructure, protect your sensitive information, and manage security information and events to assure effectiveness and regulatory compliance. As part of this commitment, the following vFabric Web Server-specific security information is provided to help you secure your environment:

External Interfaces, Ports, and Services

A vFabric Web Server instance uses TCP/IP ports to receive incoming requests and send outgoing responses. Different protocols (such as HTTP or HTTPS) listen on different ports. You can change these port numbers when you create the Web Server instance using the newserver script, but these are the default values:

  • HTTP: 80

  • HTTPS: 443

If you have already created the Web Server instance, you can change its HTTP listen port by updating the Listen 90 http directive in the INSTANCE-DIR/conf/httpd.conf file, where INSTANCE-DIR refers to the directory in which the Web Server instance is located, such as /opt/vmware/vfabric-web-server/myserver. To update the HTTPS port, update the Listen 443 https directive in the INSTANCE-DIR/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf file.

vFabric Web Server does not have any external interfaces or services that need to be enabled or opened.
