Where do you change the port for the MonitorController?


The port for the MonitorController is changed in the UI on the Enforce server.

From the UI, click System Overview -> Select Detection Server -> Configure -> Port

The default value is 8100.  Change this value to the desired setting.

The same modifications will also need to be made in the C:\Vontu\Protect\config\ or C:\SymantecDLP\Protect\config\ file on the Detection Server.

For example:

# The port number on which the server is listening.
# Used by the BoxMonitor only.
listenPort = 8100

This should be at the bottom of the file.

Note: VontuMonitor service must be restarted for changes to take effect.
