Learn how to move the OSCE client to a different web port using Apache, and not IIS.


To change the web port of OSCE client in Apache:

  1. Open the Windows Explorer on the OfficeScan server.
  2. Navigate to C:/Program Files/Trend Micro/Officescan/PCCSRV/Apache2/conf folder.
  3. Open the services in Control Panel, and then stop the OfficeScan Master Service and Apache.
  4. Back up the httpd.conf file located in C:/Program Files/Trend Micro/Officescan/PCCSRV/Apache2/conf folder.
  5. Edit the httpd.conf file to enable Apache to listen on two ports. Temporarily using both ports is necessary because you have to send the "port change command" later.
    1. Open the httpd.conf file.
    2. Look for the term "listen". You should find "Listen 8080".
    3. Underneath "Listen 8080", insert a line including your desired port. For example, if you want it to listen to port 8081, insert the following line:

      Listen 8081

    4. Find the VirtualHost for the web site configuration. You should see a line similar to "<VirtualHost servername:4343>".
    5. Add your desired port on the line above. Using our previous example, insert "servername:8081". The line should be similar to this:

      <VirtualHost servername:4343 servername:8081>

    6. Save and exit the file.
  6. Restart the Apache and OfficeScan Master Service.
  7. Open the OfficeScan console.
  8. Go to Administration > Agent Connection Settings.
  9. Change the port from 8080 to your desired port. Using our previous example, change the port from 8080 to 8081.
    Since the ports have the same server name, you only need to change the port.
  10. Save the changes and deploy it to all the clients.
  11. Wait for a few minutes, and then check if the clients are now using your new port (e.g. port 8081).
    1. Right-click the OfficeScan icon on the Taskbar of a client, and select OfficeScan console.
    2. Click Help | About. You should now see the server name and the new port.
  12. When all the clients are using the correct port, you may edit the httpd.conf file to remove port 8080 in the lines of "Listen" and "VirtualHost".
