Manual HTTP IP-Port Binding

Greetings Ladies & Gentlemen,
Hi does anyone know what and where to enter the Bind Address in the port.cnf file?


I know it can be done, I just don’t know the specifics.

I appreciate your response Rob.
wM Gurus …I just want to bind the ip with the instance…someone please help!

what and where to enter the Bind Address in the port.cnf file?
All your inputs would be monumentally appreciated !

I got this info from an IS admin at a former client (thanks Jon!):

The file to edit is …/packages/WmRoot/config/listeners.cnf.

The safest way to edit things is to use the Administrator UI. When using this, the hostname is resolved to the IP and the IP is saved in the file. If you don’t want this behavior, you’ll need to edit listener.cnf by hand.

The Administrator UI doesn’t let you bind the default port. There are two ways to overcome this:

  1. Set another port as the default temporarily. Edit the port as needed, then restore it as the default port.

  2. Edit listeners.cnf. I think IS needs to be shutdown as I believe the file is rewritten on shutdown. Put this entry in the appropriate record:


and use the appropriate IP or hostname.


You rock dude !
Thanks a gazillion for this…

Plus i was wrong about the port.cnf.
I should have mentioned listeners.cnf instead.
Thanks a lot Eamon.
