Defining a custom web UI port


These instructions apply to any platform.


Port numbers under 1024 are restricted to root or setuid programs. An alternative technique to use low port numbers is to enable iptables and essentially do port mapping of 443 to a higher port.

  1. Edit /usr/local/unravel/etc/ on the Unravel server (all hosts, for multi-host installs) and add this environment variable. Replace 18080 with your chosen port number.

    export NGUI_PORT=18080 
  2. After making this change, restart the affected daemon.

    # sudo /etc/init.d/unravel_ngui restart
