    From the Server Manager you must first select the server instance from the drop-down list.

  2. Choose the Edit Listen Sockets link.

    The Edit Listen Sockets page is displayed.

    Note –

    If you have an external module installed, the Manage Server Certificates page appears requiring the external module’s password before you can continue.
