Using different port for client - sonicdivx - 08-08-2014 01:25 AM

Hi,

I originally attempted to use a different port for the client (Apache server) and had no luck (could not see agent).

My client and agent are running on the same box (test setup), besides configuring Apache to use the different port, where else should this be changed? Also is it even advisable to do this?

Thanks

By "client" do you mean the web server and UI? Yes, running them on the same box works fine and my dev instance is set up like that in a VM. The test agents poll the server over HTTP so as long as the web UI is working the agents should be able to talk to it. More often than not the problem is in the configuration of the locations.
