Change Admin Port?


Recommended Posts

Hi Walt!


Yes, it is possible to change admin port via our configuration/properties mechanism. Please follow the steps listed below:

  1. Locate user.prefs file in the Connect home folder*
  2. Look for a key=value entry where the key is equal to AdminPort
  3. If there is no such entry, please create one.

  4. Please specify desired port as the value for this entry.

  5. Save the file, restart Connect, click on the tray icon and you should be navigated to the appropriate page including new port.

So for my local setup, I had to create a new entry like so: AdminPort=11234


Keep in mind that Connect will fail to start if you chose port which is already occupied, so please make sure that no other services are listening on that port.


* during the Beta Connect is reusing Intella's home folder (for me it's located in: %UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Intella). This has already been changed in the code base, so new version of Connect will have it's own separate folder containing all the configuration (%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\Intella Connect). Any changes to the configuration files that you will make now will have to be ported later

 to the new directory.


Please let me know if this has worked for you.


Best regards,
