Firewall Issues

By default all IxoraRMS services use dynamic port allocation. When the Console and the HostManagers are separated by a firewall, fixed, user defined ports must be used. The following steps must be taken in order to force IxoraRMS services to use certain port numbers:
  1. Open file /config/services.properties with a text editor.
  2. Set the useDynamicPorts property to false.
  3. Assign a port number to every service.
  4. Save the file and restart the Console.
  5. Copy the file to the same location on all hosts running HostManagers.
  6. Restart all HostManagers.
