IssueThe on-screen help is slightly misleading when defining a proxy web server for an HTTP Federation (HFED) application (configuration Step 4) that utilizes a non-standard port.
This can lead to incorrecly defining the Portal URL/landing page in configuration Step 6.
ResolutionThe port number referred to when defining a web server (part of Step 4. Proxy Settings) is the port number of the target application.  The IDR-hosted reverse proxy only listens on ports 80 and 443 so the Portal URL/landing page (Step 6. Portal Display) should not explicitly define a port number.
Below is an example of target application that uses non-standard port 8180.  Note that the Portal URL definition does not use the non-standard port number.
