By default, the Apache Web server that is installed with View Transfer Server listens on port 80 or, if SSL is used, port 443. You can change the default ports by editing Apache Web server configuration files.

The default HTTP port is 80. You change the HTTP port by editing the httpd.conf file on the View Transfer Server computer.

The default HTTPS port is 443. You change the HTTPS port by editing the mod_vprov.conf file on the View Transfer Server computer.

During installation, View configures the Windows firewall to open the ports that are used by View Transfer Server by default. If you change the ports, you must manually reconfigure your Windows firewall to open the updated ports so that View Client devices can connect to the View Transfer Server instance.

1

Stop the VMware View Transfer Server service.
