Hi,

Another admin has installed Blackice on our only RedHat server and its now using port 8081 for blackice-icecap service.  Is there any way to change this port to another? I need 8081 for video conferencing software.  This is pretty urgent so 500 up for grabs!

Thanks and good luck

is there anything like /etc/blackice.ini ? This is suppose to be the primary config file and is suppose to list the port number. You need to stop and start the service before and after the change.

Strangely this .ini file is same for windows as well.

But why do you need BlackIce?? I have hardly known anyone using that.

Sorry, if it does not help.

Best,

Hi Surbabu140977

We dont need it but when I run nstat I can see port 8081/tcp open blackice-icecap...... I cant find any reference for it in the file system yet.  Is this just the default service name for this port I wonder?

Thanks for your reply!

eh, if you don't find blackice then some other apps is using that port which is in open state and Red hat popularly beliefs it's a blackice-icecap service. It's a common mistake though.  :)

Try the netstat -p to determine which process opened the port. You should be able to see which process is using that. You can act accordingly.

Best,
