Webserver port conflict when running ipMonitor on a computer running a separate web server

Updated September 25, 2018

Overview

When you run ipMonitor on a computer running a separate web server product, you receive an ipMonitor webserver port conflict.

Environment

  • ipMonitor 7
  • ipMonitor 8
  • ipMonitor 8.5
  • ipMonitor 9.0

Cause

You can run ipMonitor on a computer that is running other web server software, but the two programs cannot share the same IP address and port combination.

ipMonitor uses port 8080 and port 443 as its default web server ports. If the existing web server is bound to all IP addresses assigned to the computer on ports 8080 or 443, then you must change the conflicting ipMonitor web server ports.

See Port requirements for all SolarWinds products for a list of all ipMonitor ports.

Resolution

Resolve the ipMonitor web server port conflict.

  1. Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds ipMonitor > Configure ipMonitor.
  2. On the ipMonitor 9.0 Configuration Program window, click Communications: Web Server Ports.
  3. Select the conflicting port, and then click Edit.
  4. In the Port (TCP) box, enter an unused port number.
    If you require an encrypted connection, select Enable SSL.
  5. Complete the wizard.
