By default the meeting server (FMS) in Connect binds to port 1935. Here’s how to add additional ports like port 80 for use with the meeting server.
This should work with all versions of Connect. I am assuming you would like to use port 80 and 443 in addition to 1935 (all in rtmp, no encryption).
As Connect consists of two servers, the application server (Tomcat) and the meeting server (FMS) you need to configure a second IP address and FQDN in order to bind two services to port 80. Make sure your new FQDN resolves to the new second IP address. The second IP and FQDN will be used for the meeting traffic.
I am using these values in my setup:
Application Server: connect912.adobe.com – IP 10.1.1.1
Meeting Server: connect912meeting.adobe.com – IP 10.1.1.2
So here we go:
- Make sure you can ping both names and they resolve to the correct IP addresses.
- Open the server console and set the new meeting server FQDN in the “external name” field and save your changes.
In my setup this is connect912meeting.adobe.com:
- Configure the meeting server to listen on the new IP:Port.
In my setup I am adding port 80 and 443 in addition to the default port 1935.
Open the custom.ini (by deault in C:\Connect\9.1.1\ if running Connect 9.1.x) and add these lines:
Replace 10.1.1.2 with your meeting server IP address and also make sure the RTMP_SEQUENCE is in one line. Save the changes.
- Restart the services, FMS and Adobe Connect service.
Once the services are back up and running you should be able to start a new meeting. If there are no firewall restrictions a meeting should connect on the first port listed in the RTMP_SEQUENCE. In this example port 1935.
To test the connection on the other ports, block outgoing connections to port 1935 on your client firewall. If the meeting is still open on your client it should briefly disconnect and reconnect on the next available port. In my setup this would be port 80.
You can check which port you are connected to in a meeting by holding down the shift key and clicking “About Adobe Connect” from the help menu (top right in your meeting).
