How to change the ports used by ABBYY FlexiCapture

ABBYY FlexiCapture stations connect to its servers through the default ports 80 and 443 using the HTTP or HTTPS protocol. You can set up ABBYY FlexiCapture components to use different ports, which can be desirable in some situations such as when the default ports are used by another application.

To change the ports used by ABBYY FlexiCapture components, complete the following steps:

  1. Setup Internet Information Services:
    1. Start the IIS Manager (Run -> inetmgr);
    2. Right-click the Default Web Site node and click Edit Bindings... command on the shortcut menu to open the Site Bindings dialog box;
    3. In this dialog box, change the port of the HTTP or HTTPS protocol.
  2. Switch Web Components to a different port. To web.config files add the following tag

    <add key="ApplicationServer" value="localhost:PORT" />

    where PORT is the desired port number.

    Web.config files are located in folders:

    • C:\inetpub\wwwroot\FlexiCapture12\Login\web.config
    • C:\inetpub\wwwroot\FlexiCapture12\Monitoring\web.config
    • C:\inetpub\wwwroot\FlexiCapture12\<Station>\ web.config
  3. Restart IIS.

Do not forget to specify the changed port number to access Administration and monitoring console and other web station:
http://localhost:PORT/FlexiCapture12/<station name>.
