    Hi:

    I have an anti-virus application that needs to use port 8080 on my Small
    Business Server 2003 Premium R2 PC. The anti-virus application can use port
    8080 and redirect the incoming traffic to another port. I just don't know
    which service in SBS uses port 8080 so that I can redirect it. Is it
    SharePoint? If it is, how do I redirect it?

    Thanks.

    8080 is a common port used by web servers, so it is a good guess that
    Sharepoint & IIS are using it.

    I would not recommend changing your server ports just to accomodate your
    anti-virus software and there should be no reason why the AV software can't
    use this port while other software is using it also.

  3. If you have ISA installed it uses 8080 for the proxy server

    But if you don't use ISA
    Typically nothing uses port 8080 on Standard SBS2003
    However some routers use port 8080 for remote login

    So I advise staying away from using that port.

    If Sharepoint is using 8080 then you must have created a site using that
    port.

    What Virus Program uses 8080?
    Because of the other common services that use this port
    Can't you change it?

    I use Trend Micro InterScan Virus Wall as my anti-virus application. It can
    scan live smtp, http, pop3 and ftp traffic for viruses, spam, etc.

    I have to let this product scan port 8080. I just read in it's documentation
    that ISA Server uses port 8080. I know how to redirect Exchange Server from
    using port 25. How do I redirect ISA from using port 8080 so that it uses
    some other port (assuming the Trend Micro product will use port forwarding
    from 8080 to the new port)?

    Thanks.

    6.4 Configuring InterScan VirusWall Server to work with SBS 2003
    =====================================================================
    On Windows SBS 2003 Standard/Enterprise editions, the following
    ports may be used by system itself:

    25: SMTP port, which may be used by Exchange server
    8080: HTTP proxy port, which may be used by ISA HTTP proxy
    110: POP3 port, which may be used by Exchange server
    21: FTP port, which may be used by IIS.

    IIS always shipped with Windows server systems like 2000/2003/SBS.
    Exchange server is a base component of SBS.
    ISA server is a component of SBS enterprise edition.

    If you install the InterScanVirusWall server on SBS 2003, you will
    need to do the following after you complete the installation:

    1. Access the ISVW Web Management console.
    2. Change the Service Port settings for SMTP and HTTP.
    3. Restart the service.

    Trend Micro highly recommends that you use the ISVW Web console to
    change the listening ports for related protocols if the default
    are being used by other components on the same servers.

  6. AFAIK, that product is really designed to run on a separate gateway server.
    I
    wouldn't put it on my Exchange server or SBS box.

    For your Exchange scanning, use ScanMail (best in SBS to use the
    Client/Server/Messaging Security suite for SMB, which includes it).
