The Web Server Properties File

You can use the Web Server properties file to modify the following settings:

  • The HTTPS port used to connect to the Transfer Client. The default is 9492.
  • The port used by the Reflection for Secure IT server and the Reflection for Secure IT Web Server to communicate with the User Manager. This value must match the value configured in the User Manager properties file and in the External Users pane of the Reflection for Secure IT server console. By default, 9190 is configured for all three servers.
  • The hostname and port used by the Transfer Client to connect to the Reflection for Secure IT server. By default, the computer name and port 22 are used. The port must match the value configured on the Network tab of the Reflection for Secure IT server console.
  • HTTPS certificate settings. (For more information about these settings, see Replace the Default Server Certificate.)

The properties file is located in the Web Edition installation folder in the WebServer\conf subfolder. The default is:

C:\Program Files\Attachmate\RSecureWebEdition\WebServer\conf\container.properties

Notes:

  • You must restart the server after editing container.properties for your changes to take effect.
  • Paths in this file must be specified using forward slashes or escaped backslashes. For example:

    C:/pathto/keystore

    C:\\pathto\\keystore

  • Do not edit the entries at the top of the file (above the first comment).
  • A backup file, container.properties.example, in the same folder provides a copy of the original default settings.
