Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator's Guide

Editing Listen Socket Settings

Before the server can process a request, it must accept the request via a listen socket, then direct the request to the correct virtual server. When you install the Sun Java System Web Server, one listen socket, ls1, is created automatically. This listen socket uses the IP address and the port number you specified as your HTTP server port number during installation (the default is 8888). You cannot delete the default listen socket.

You can edit the server’s listen socket settings using the Administration Server’s Listen Sockets Table.

ProcedureTo access the administration server’s Listen Sockets table

  1. Access the Administration Server and click the Preferences tab.

  2. Click the Edit Listen Sockets link.

  3. Make the necessary changes and click OK.

    For more information, see Chapter 14, Using Virtual Servers and the online help for the Edit Listen Sockets page.
