Port 8000 is used for another application.  I need to change the communication between the Endpoint Server and Endpoint Agent to use another port.


The default port for communications is 8000.  To change the default port, you will need to change the appropriate value setting in the install_agent.bat file.

  The port can be defined with the ENDPOINTSERVER name:port.

msiexec /i AgentInstall.msi /q INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Manufacturer\Endpoint Agent\" ENDPOINTSERVER="hostname:8002" KEY="" UNINSTALLPASSWORDKEY="" SERVICENAME="EDPA" WATCHDOGNAME="WDP" ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT="1"

Please note that the port must also be configured for the Endpoint server:

Go to : System -> Overview -> [Endpoint Server Name] -> Configure -> Agent Listener

Change Port to match what is set in the install_agent.bat file.
