Alternative Port for OpenFire Chat Server


Is there any way to change/remap the default ports to an alternative port for management
purpose and/or use? The default ports are blocked by the upstream network.


Thanks yall.

Just open the file, change the port to any port you want

%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\services

Then you would open the config file for the service and change the port I think that would work
