HTTP Custom Port Configuration on Local Client installation of KFS



Question / Problem:

When attempting to configure a custom HTTP port for the KFS 4.1 Local Client to sync with the KFS server, the Web.config file is not located in the path defined by the KFS 4.1 Installation Guide.

Answer / Solution:

On page 40 of the Kofax Front Office Server 4.1 Installation Guide, in the section, Configuring the Port for HTTP Binding, the path to the Local Client's Web.config is incorrectly listed as being

C:\ProgramData\Kofax\Front Office Server 4.1

The correct path for the Local Client's Web.config file is

 C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\Front Office Server 4.1

To configure the Local Client to use a custom HTTP port for syncing with the KFS server:

  1. On the Local Client station, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\Front Office Server 4.1
  2. Edit 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 KFS 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.
