You can customize the port on which the VMware Remote Console console proxy listens for messages.


  1. Open the /etc/vcac/ file in a text editor.
  2. Add a line to the file of the form consoleproxy.service.port=8445.

    The numerical value specifies the console proxy service port number, in this case 8445.

  3. Save the file and close it.
  4. Restart the vcac-server using the command /etc/init.d/vcac-server restart.


The proxy service port changes to the specified port number.
