Using Non-Standard Ports in Microsoft IIS

You can run Iron Speed Designer applications on ‘non-standard’ ports other than port 80 (http) and 443 (https).

Step 1:  Right-click on the “Default Website“ folder in Microsoft IIS and select Properties, TCP Port, and set the desired port value.

Step 2:  Open your application’s Web.config file and change the WebServer key, e.g.:

<add key="WebServer" value="http://localhost:8070" />

In this example, “8070” is the desired ‘non-standard’ port number.

Save your changes in Web.config.

Step 3:  Refresh your application in Iron Speed Designer.

Step 4:  Build and run your application.

Your application’s start page displays in the web browser with http://localhost:8070... (or other selected port) in the URL.
