Change POP Secure and LDAP secure default ports

IT_Techno used Ask the Experts™
Hi, i have a request from the firewall administrator to change the POPS and LDAPS default ports on the Exchange 2003 server. Is this possible and how to do it? I have searched the web and found nothing on this topic.

port numbers to 16363 – LDAPS, 16995 – POP3S

To change POP3 SSL, Open Exchange System Manager, Expand to your Exchange Server, then the Protocols area, Expand POP3, Properties then Advanced Button.

for LDAP SSL, no answer, but that may cause other problems.  

Any info on why that needs to be changed?  I would question the need.


thanks, I have managed to convince them to see things your way.
