Re-register server after changing default port

By default, Symphony servers use port 50000 as the web port. In some cases, you need to change the default port. For example, if you want to publish multiple servers on the same external IP address, you need to change the default ports of the subsequent server(s). By changing the BasePort (web port), other ports will automatically change as well.

Once you publish Symphony to a non-standard port (for example changed the range from 50000 to 40000), you must complete the following:

  1. Delete the server from the Server List in Symphony (locally) and then re-register it with the new port (40001 for example.)
  2. On any Clients connected to that server, you must also delete the server from the Server List in Symphony (locally) and then re-register it with the new port (40001 for example.)

To change the default port for a single Symphony server:

  1. In Symphony Client, from the Server menu, select Manual Configuration Editor.
  2. Click Add a new setting... The fields under the column headings are activated.
  3. Enter the following information:
  4. Type = Server
    Section = Main
    ID = (enter your Server ID)
    Key = BasePort
    Value = (enter your new default web port)
  5. Restart the Symphony services.
