HTTP Custom Port Configuration on Local Client installation of KFS

Article # 3031717 - Page views: 393


When attempting to configure a custom HTTP port for the KFS 4.3 Local Client to sync with the KFS server, the Web.config file is not located in the path defined by the KFS 4.3 Installation Guide. What is the correct procedure to adjust the custom port for http?


1. Locate web.config. For the KFS Server, the default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\Front Office Server 4.3

2. Backup and edit the web.config in a text editor.

3. Locate the <KfsSettings> element:
<KfsSettings ParentSite="https://<server>/Kofax/KFS/" ServerHttp="80"
PingInterval="10" StandaloneIIS="true" />
Where <server> is the server host name or IP address.

4. Locate the ServerHttp attribute and specify the port number for the HTTP binding on the server.
For example, if HTTP is bound to port 85, modify the KfsSettings element as shown:
<KfsSettings ParentSite="https://<server>/Kofax/KFS/" ServerHttp="85"
PingInterval="10" StandaloneIIS="true" />

5. Save and close the file. Then restart the KFS service and run iisreset to restart the webservice.
