We replaced the default 8081 port with 10600 port, which is the “Agent wake-up communication port” here. Because the previous “8081” port was conflicting with the port of some servers. You can also change it here. For this, you can make the change by clicking the “Edit” button below. Before doing this, you need to allow the port you will change from your Institution’s Firewall to all systems accessed by the ePO server.
