When installing IIS for the first time, a Default Web Site is created using ports 80 and 443. If this is not in use it should be removed before installing Management Utilities. – • Management Utilities uses Internet Information Server 7 or 8 as its web server. You can define the Web Server port numbers for Management Utilities during installation. The default ports used are 80 and 443. To remove the Default Web Site go to Programs - Control Panel - Administrative Tools - IIS Manager, choose the Default Web Site, click the right mouse button and choose Remove. Windows Firewall – If Windows Firewall is enabled, set exceptions for World Wide Web Server (HTTP) and Secure World Wide Web Server (HTTPS), or open ports 80 and 443 in the Windows Firewall. If you specify non-default ports when installing SyAM Management Utilities, the exceptions or port settings must correspond to those ports. For example, if Management Utilities is configured to use port 55 for HTTP and 555 for HTTPS, use the netsh command as follows: • • netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”SyAM-Open-Port-55” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=55 netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”SyAM-Open-Port-555” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=555 Management Utilities - Installation & Configuration 4
