Typically, you do not have to configure port numbers manually. The information service handles port configuration automatically. Use the default port of the information service to connect to the Open Agent. Then, the information service forwards communication to the port that the Open Agent uses. However, you can configure the information service port settings to avoid problems with a firewall by forcing communication on a specific port.
By default, the port that is used to connect Silk4J with the information service over a secure HTTPS connection is port 48561. When you can use the default port, you can type hostname without the port number for ease of use. If you do specify a port number, ensure that it matches the value for the default port of the information service or one of the additional information service ports. Otherwise, communication will fail.
If necessary, you can change the port number that all clients use to connect to the information service.
