For the default HTTPS installation, Port Configuration defaults to Port 8443. If this installation requires a different port for SSL/TLS communication or if Port 8443 is in use by another application, then enter an alternate port number.
MSIB fails to start if the specified port is already in use by another application, so it is important to ensure that an unused port is provided here.
To change the HTTPS port after initial installation, see the section titled Changing the HTTPS Port.
