DCS Manager uses multiple ports such as:

443: agent communication to manager
4443: REST API connection 
8443: UMC Webportal access
8081: catalina tomcat status page
2443: CWP Bridge connection port



With DCS 6.9.2 and higher, port 2443 and 8081 are no longer required and can safely be removed


**Please always make a backup of the Server.xml prior to modifying it**

To remove the ports that are not being used we need to edit the server.xml

Open the server.xml and remove the lines: <Service name ="Bridge-Service"> and <Service name="Catalina">

We need to ensure we remove all components under this line, the end result should look like this:
