Technote (FAQ)


How do you change the port number used by the Admin Agent on a IBM Rational Reporting and Administration Tool?


The standard port number used by Admin agent to communicate with the ART Server Admin over HTTP is 4080, and HTTPS is 4083.
Due to restrictive network environments, you may need to use specific port numbers other than the standard ports for Server Admin and Admin Agent communication.


To change the default port configured for the agent, follow the below mentioned steps on each of the machines having the Admin Agent's installed.

  1. Navigate to the installation directory of the RLKSAdminAgent

  2. Open the file located in RLKSAdminAgent > servers > rclagent with a text editor

  3. Edit the standard port numbers to the one you require

    By default the current standard port for HTTP is 4080 and HTTPS is 4083.

  4. Click Save

  5. Restart the Admin Agent
