How to Change Yellowfin's Default Listening Port

By default Tomcat will listen for Yellowfin traffic on port 8080. If you would like to specify a different port for Tomcat to listen on for Yellowfin traffic, edit the server.xml file, located at:

/appserver/conf/server.xml

First, shut down Yellowfin. Find the Connector item, and change the Connector Port value from 8080 to the port you want to listen on. For example, to tell Tomcat to listen on port 7373 for Yellowfin traffic:

maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true"
URIEncoding="UTF-8"
compression="on"
compressionMinSize="2048"
noCompressionUserAgents="gozilla, traviata"
compressableMimeType="text/html,text/xml,text/plain"

After changing and saving this file, restart Yellowfin so that Tomcat starts listening on the new address.
