IssueHow do I change my Sentry RA 3.x server port numbers?
ResolutionTask: Should you wish to change the port numbers for your Enrollment and Administration Servers, this can be done quite simply. The file SentryRA\Webserver\conf\httpd.conf needs to be changed, and the Administrative and Directory Servers need to be restarted. The explanation below assumes you have done a Sentry RA 3.x default install (ports 443 and 444). If you have configured other ports, those numbers would appear instead.

Solution:
1. To move the Enrollment Server:
In httpd.conf, in the first section, modify the following line to specify the desired port for the enrollment server (444 in this example).

# The main server port
Port 444

Further down in httpd.conf, under the section Sentry CA Enrollment Server, change the following lines to specify the desired port.

### SSL Virtual Host ###
Listen 444

<VirtualHost *:444>

2. To move the Admin Server:
In httpd.conf, under the section Sentry CA Administration Server, change the following lines to specify the desired port (443 in this example).

### SSL Virtual Host ###
Listen 443

<VirtualHost *:443>

3. Restarting the Servers
Under services, stop the Sentry RA Administrative and Secure Directory servers (in that order). Then restart them, Secure Directory first.

Note: You can change one of the servers without changing the other.
