Optional: When initially deployed, Cloud Remote uses default ports for the following services:

ServiceDefault Port
HTTPS (web UI)443
AMQP (Rabbit MQ)5671
Guacamole8443

The Cloud Remote appliance includes a Change Ports shell script that lets you change these port numbers from their default values to your own custom values. This is useful if firewall settings are blocking these default ports.

The Guacamole service is only needed for user access to VM-based deployments. Therefore, there is no need to create a custom port number for the Guacamole service if this Cloud Remote cluster is used to support connectivity to a Kubernetes target cloud.

Follow these steps to run the script:

Only run the script after you have downloaded the artifacts.zip file from the region connectivity settings section of the Regions tab in the Workload Manager or Cost Optimizer UI, and then uploaded that file to Cloud Remote through the Cloud Remote web UI. In addition, if you later need to upload a new artifacts.zip file to Cloud Remote, the custom port settings will be erased and you will need to run the Change Ports script again.

  1. Establish an ssh session to master (initial) Cloud Remote instance.
  2. Navigate to the directory: /opt/cisco/pilot/builds/<pilot folder>/bin
  3. Run the shell script: 

    changeports.sh
  4. You are first prompted to see if you want to change the web UI port number. Type "Y" or "N". 

    1. If you enter "Y", you are prompted for:

      1. Current port number. Type any number and then ENTER. 

      2. New port number.  Type the new port number and then ENTER. The script will attempt to change the port number on this node and then on all other nodes in your Cloud Remote cluster. When done, you are prompted whether you want to change the value of the next port.

    2. If you enter "N", you are prompted whether you want to change the value of the next port.
  5. When you are prompted for the Rabbit MQ port number, type "Y" and enter the old and then new port numbers as above, or type "N", whichever is appropriate.
  6. When you are prompted for the Guacamole port number, type "Y" and enter the old and then new port numbers as above, or type "N", whichever is appropriate. If the target cloud is a Kubernetes cloud, the Guacamole server is not used and you would therefore enter "N".
