How to change WSUS Content URL for Microsoft updates from 8530 to 8531 on Server 2012 R2

I recently configured my WSUS upstream server to use SSL on port 8531.My downstream servers are connecting and synchronizing fine no  errors, but unable to download Security and Critical updates from my upstream server.

When I check the URL for the content store, it is pointing  to  http://myserver01:8530/content/02/72ea.....
 I believe this is why my downstream servers not getting updates.

Is there a way to change the content port to point to http://myserver01:8531

I believe the download of updates has to use the non-SSL port:

To keep WSUS functioning, you should not require SSL for the following virtual roots:

  *  Content

  *  ReportingWebService

  *  SelfUpdate
