Configure a LIstener Port for Incoming Requests

  2. On the appliances tree, select the appliance you want to configure a listener port on and click Proxies (HTTP(S), FTP, ICAP, and IM).
    The proxy settings appear on the settings pane.
  3. Scroll down to the HTTP Proxy section.
  4. Make sure Enable HTTP proxy is selected.
  5. On the toolbar of the HTTP port definition list, click the Add icon.
    The Add HTTP Proxy Port window opens.
  6. Configure a listener port as follows:
    1. In the Listener address field, type
      If you want to use a different port for listening to incoming requests, type it here.
    2. In the Ports treated as SSL field, type *.
    3. Make sure all other checkboxes are selected.
  7. Click OK to close the Edit Settings window.
  8. Click Save Changes.
  9. Restart the appliance to make the configuration of the listener port effective.
