How to change the default IIS port for your server website

This article explains how to change the port 80 that comes with a default Gpsgate installation.

In a default installation, your GpsGate server uses the following URL:

http(s)://yourserverURL/gpsgateserver

This guide will show you how to change this, for example to : http(s)://yourserverURL:8082/gpsgateserver

How to modify the port

1. Open your IIS Manager typically located under Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager

2. Click on the Default Website, and the Bindings option will be displayed.

If you use a custom URL path, clicking on your custom website will also display this option.
