To change the port on which the Snap Creator Agent is listening, you can make a change in the Snap Creatoragent.properties file and restart the agent.

The procedure for changing the Snap Creator Agent port is the same for Windows and UNIX. The following procedure uses examples from the UNIX environment.

  1. Log in to the system on which the Snap Creator Agent is running, and switch to the etc subdirectory within the installation directory.

    cd /install_path/scAgent4.3.0/etc
  2. Open the agent.properties file using a text editor.

  3. Change the value of the DEFAULT_PORT parameter to the new port (by default, the port is 9090).

    For example, to use port 9191, change the DEFAULT_PORT parameter as follows:

    DEFAULT_PORT=9191
  4. Save and close the agent.properties file.

  5. Restart the Snap Creator Agent.

    /install_path/scAgent4.3.0/bin/scAgent restart
    If the Snap Creator Agent is running when any changes are made to the allowed_commands.config file or the agent.properties file, then the agent must be restarted.
