Configuring CDP Server Ports

By default, the embedded web server in CDP 3 Standard Edition required for the Web-based Interface will listen on TCP ports 80 (HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS). These ports are frequently in use by your Linux Server (e.g. by Apache). If you are already using ports 80 and 443 by other applications, you will need to define different ports for the CDP Server. 8080 (HTTP) and 8443 (HTTPS) are recommended alternatives to standard 80 and 443. You can chose any valid and unused TCP port that you like.
