To add a new HTTP listener click on the link Tomcat|Jetty BIO|NIO|APR HTTP Connector in the Network Linsteners portlet. The following figure illustrates some of the parameters possible for creating a new Tomcat HTTP listener. The parameters each have a default value and explanatory text. Fill in with your values and click on Save.

The required attributes are explained as followed:

  • uniqueName A name that is different than the name for any other web connectors in the server (no spaces in the name).
  • host The host name or IP to bind to. The normal values are (all interfaces) or localhost (local connections only)
  • port The TCP port number on which this Connector will create a server socket and await incoming connections. Your operating system will allow only one server application to listen to a particular port number on a particular IP address.

Refer to Tomcat HTTP Connector for more information about other attributes.
