Web parameter: helpServerPort

Web parameters change the behavior of the web clients that connect to the web tier. For more information, see Web tier parameters.




This parameter defines the communications port number on which the Help server listens to client requests. You must define this parameter if your end users need to access the Service Manager help center from the web client.

Important The Service Manager help center is published at the following web site: https://docs.microfocus.com. No help server installation package is available for you to deploy the help center on your own server. Since the help center web site uses the default port, you must leave this parameter empty or set it to 80.
