    hi folks,

    is there a way to run ISPconfig on the same port as the main-httpd ? would be nice to also use port 443 since some customers might want to use it from their workplace where a firewall/proxy might not allow traffic to port 81.

    If you have two IP addresses, you can configure the ISPConfig httpd to listen on a dedicated IP on port 443

    Hi, can anyone give me more hints how to do this?

    I need to use port 443 for ISPConfig and Webmail as it was now on port 81.
    I have two IPs.
    I will implement SSL certificate from CA.

    What I have to do in ISPConfig?

    Thank you for help.

    You want to run ISPConfig on port 443 and webmail on port 81? :confused:

    No. I want to avoid using port 81 completely as this is not standard port and many users have problem to access it if they are behind firewall or proxy.

    I want to use port 443 for ISPconfig and Webmail.

    I also want to have port 443 for clients web available too.
    I have available more IPs if required.

    but if you put ISPConfig admin on 443, you will not be able to offer SSL websites since the 443 port will be already used.

    Can you explain why the system works like that?

    It is obvious that port 81 is not the best. Does it work in the same way with other products similar to ISPConfig?

    If you have only one IP, the answer from the_spy is correct- If you have more then one IP, cou can use port 443 for the ISPConfig webserver and on the main webserver by restricting the ISPConfig httpd to listen only to one IP address and restrict the main webserver to listen to all other IP addresses except the IP where the ISPConfig server listens on.

    Generally port 81 works fine, though it might not work in your case. Some panels use e.g. port 81 or another port or they use different IP addresses as you can do it in ISPConfig as well.
