    Changing vSphere Web UI port from 443?

    StartWandowsNgrmadly Lurker

      Hello,

       

      We are currently running ESX 6.5 servers with HTML5 console access to underlying VMs over port 443. This port is also shared by the vSphere web UI, which we want to obscure from the outside world, while still allowing HTML5 console access to VMs. Is there a way to change the port number for vSphere connections without disrupting HTML5 console access? I'd like to leave 443 open, but prevent anyone from hitting the UI unless they are already internal. I have found nothing in my searching that indicates a way to do so on 6.5. I found an old article for 5.0 that showed a port number in a config file, however that file doesn't appear to exist in 6.5. Any help is appreciated.

       

      Thanks!
