  Specifying a port for Service Model Manager

The Service Model Manager (smmgr) is a service that is started by the cell to assist in publishing. When the service starts, it selects an available ephemeral port. You can configure it to listen on a fixed port so that the connection is not prevented when a random port crosses a firewall. If you use more than one cell, each cell must specify a different port number.

To specify a fixed port for Service Model Manager

  1. Navigate to the installationDirectory/pw/server/etc/ cellName/smmgr.conf file.
  2. Change the parameter ServerPort to a specific port number.
    The default value is 0, which means that any port number can be used.


    If the specified port is not available when Service Model Manager is started, start up fails.

  3. Save and close the file.
