Move Default Website(with exadmin folder) to port 80.

Posted on 2007-08-09

We have a network with SBS2003 running the network and SugarCRM running on that same system.
SugarCRM is setup on port 80, basically because we wanted users to have simple access, and it works fine. SugarCRM runs an Apache

The IIS default website was on 80, and we stopped it so that Apache could have the port.
Recently we were having issues with our anti-spam product and discovered that we could not access the public folders from system manager. A little more digging and it was found to be because we did not have the default website running on port 80.

Basically system manager needs to access the exadmin folder on the local interface on port 80. This is not possible with Apache sitting there.

So, I cannot move Apache/SugarCRM off 80/443 and therefore hope to get Exchange talking to IIS on port 81. Setting the default website to listen on 81 worked fine for OWA and the like, but System Manager and the public folders still hates it.

How do I make System Manager access IIS/exadmin on port 80? I think it should be possible, I've just been unable to find how.

    Exchange only works on port 80 and 443. Other ports do not work correctly and cannot be changed. Your only option is to add an additional IP address to the server, then change the other web service to use that IP address. Then adjust IIS to listen only to the primary default IP address.
    It has to be that way round for all SBS and OWA functionality to work.

    I had to do something similar, and the solution was to put Apache onto port 801, and then create a redirect from the default web site (now running on port 80) which automatically forwards requests to http://servername:801

    Still easy for the users, and lets IIS have 80/443
