Use this tab to specify the ports that Configuration Manager 2007 uses for the following client communication:
- Client requests: Either HTTP for mixed mode
or HTTPS for native mode. You can specify a default port and an
alternate port, which is used when migrating clients to a custom
- Wake On LAN: Transmissions using UDP packets
to wake up computers.
This tab contains the following elements:
- Active Ports
- Lists the services used by the ports, the assigned port numbers, and descriptions of the ports used.
- Properties icon
- Opens the Port Detail dialog box, which allows you to modify the selected entry in the Active Ports table.
- Describes the service provided by each of the ports specified.
Enabling the service check box allows client connections to be
accepted on the port specified.
Note At least one default client requests service using HTTP and one default client requests service using HTTPS is required.
- Specifies the port number to use for each service. Valid port
numbers range from 1 to 65535. The default values for the ports are
- HTTP: TCP 80
- HTTPS: TCP 443
- Wake On LAN: UDP 9
Important If you use nondefault port numbers, it might not be supported by the network infrastructure, such as routers, firewalls, and proxy servers. Note Port settings cannot be changed for secondary sites because secondary sites inherit port settings from their parent site.
- HTTP: TCP 80
- User-defined name of the service (maximum 50 characters). The default client requests services are identified by (Default) at the beginning of the description.
- Use custom web site
- Enables the use of a custom Web site for client communications
instead of the default Web site on site systems requiring Internet
Information Services (IIS).When the use of a custom Web site is
enabled for a site, all client communications within the site will
be directed to the custom Web site of site systems instead of the
default Web site in IIS.Before enabling the use of a custom Web
site for client communication in the Configuration Manager console,
you must manually create a custom Web site named SMSWEB on all site
systems that require IIS in the site.For more information about
configuring a custom Web site for Configuration Manager sites
see, How to
Configure Custom Web Sites for Configuration Manager Sites.
Note Custom Web site settings cannot be changed for secondary sites because secondary sites inherit custom Web site settings from their parent site.
