|Issue||This article briefly shows how to use the Linux curl command to test a specific port. This is necessary to confirm when RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle WebServices are being implemented.|
[JBoss server] requires the following ports to be available for use:
You must configure port 8445 to ensure that the workflow compiler functions correctly, but you do not need to open the port on any firewalls.
Assume, for the following examples, that the appliance hostname is myhost.mydomain.com. If the curl command is run on the same host as the application, then localhost or 127.0.0.1 can be used.
This curl command simply confirms the port is available using localhost:
curl -v http://localhost:8080
Alternatively you can use the FQDN:
curl -v http://myhost.mydomain.com:8080
The command examples below makes use of an actual WebService option which returns information about that application version:
curl "https://localhost:8443/aveksa/command.submit?cmd=about" -X POST -k
