Licensing installation sets several port numbers for communications. After installation, you can use the License Administration Console to change port numbers.
- Console Web Server Port: The HTTPS TCP/IP port that the web server uses to listen for communication with clients connecting to the License Administration Console. By default, the port is set to 8082. If you are already using that port number for another application, you can change it to a range between 1 and 65535. If you are upgrading, you maintain your previous configuration and might not get HTTPS by default. If you change the port, you must stop and restart the Citrix Licensing service.
- License Server Manager Port: This port number is used by the License Server Manager. License Server Manager handles the initial communication among the products, starts the vendor daemon, and relays check out and check in requests to the vendor daemon. By default, this port number is 27000.
Tip: You can verify which port number is being used from the System Information tab in the Administration area.
- Vendor Daemon Port: This port number is used by the Citrix vendor daemon. The vendor daemon is responsible for the core operations of the License Server, including license allocation. By default, this port number is 7279. However, if you have a firewall or if the number is already in use, you might need to change the port number.
Tip: You can verify which port number is being used from the Vendor Daemon Configuration tab in the Administration area.
The License Administration Console replaces the License Server Port Utility for changing port numbers. The License Server Port Utility was used to change port numbers before this functionality was developed in the License Administration Console.
Note: The Linux kernel reserves Ports 1 through 1024. When configuring the VPX ports, use ports above 1024. If you use SSL, use port 8082, which is open in the firewall. If you select a different port for SSL, reconfigure the firewall in the iptables.
