Question / Problem:

How can a different port be specified with Kofax Capture Network Web Server (KCN Web Server) other than the default ports?

Answer / Solution:

  1. Run the Internet Information Services administrative tool.
  2. Select the Web Site where KCN Web Server Components are installed.
  3. Right-click and select Properties. The Web Site Properties dialog box displays.
  4. Change the TCP Port setting to the desired number, for example 8080.
