Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP12 Administrator's Guide

Adding and Editing Listen Sockets

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 80). You cannot delete the default listen socket.

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

ProcedureTo access the table

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

  2. Click the Edit Listen Sockets link.

  3. Make the required changes and click OK.
