How can the Gateway be configured to allow WebSocket and HTTP(s) traffic over a single port?
Release : 9.4
Component : API Gateway
The Gateway does not currently allow for WS and HTTP(s) traffic to be served over a single port. Should you create a listen port, ie 9888 and use this same port to define a WebSocket connection you will receive the below error:
Additionally, if the WS port is created first and then re-used this port for HTTP(s), you will notice it allows you do add it. However, trying to hit any endpoint will result in a 404 error.
This is by design and a dedicated port will be required for each.
