How To Open the Tomcat Port
Note: This solution applies to DocuShare 6.00.01 and earlier. The start_docushare tomcat http on command is not supported in DocuShare 6.5.x and higher.
Note: You must be an Windows Administrator to perform this solution.
Note: To perform this solution it requires that you stop DocuShare.
From the DocuShare Server,
1. Stop DocuShare.
2. Open a Command Prompt window and change into the <dshome>\bin directory.
Where <dshome> is replaced with the installation directory for DocuShare. The default installation path is C:\Xerox\Docushare. Depending on your installation environment the path may vary.
3. Type start_docushare tomcat http on <port> update-only and press Enter.
Where <port> is replaced with the tomcat port number you would like to use. The default port number during installation is 8080.
Example: start_docushare tomcat http on 8080 update-only
4. Start DocuShare.
5. Try accessing the DocuShare page using port 8080.
Note: To turn off the tomcat port you can use the following command. start_docushare tomcat http off update-only. However, if you use Wikis, Weblogs, and/or Workspaces you will need to refer to the How To Close Tomcat HTTP Port and Still have Wiki, Weblog, and Workspaces Functions Work solution link listed at the bottom of this page.
