By default TeamPulse makes use of ports 9897, 9898, and 9899 for access to the User Management, TeamPulse, and Integration sites and services. In some cases those ports may be in use by another application, or otherwise restricted within your environment, making it necessary for a change to these defaults. With TeamPulse SP1 it's a fairly simple task to change the ports via modifications to a couple of configuration files, which we will show below. We do recommend, however, that anyone uncomfortable with editing config files have their system administrator help to make these changes.
Part 1: IIS Configuration
Step 1: Open IIS by clicking on the Start Menu, entering “IIS” into the “Search programs and files” box and hitting enter
Step 2: Select the TeamPulse website and Click on Bindings on the right
Step 3: Ensure that the port binding you want to edit is selected and click the edit button
Step 4: Change the port field to the port you wish to use and click OK and then close the Site Bindings screen
Step 5: Restart the web site by clicking the restart button pictured below
Step 6 (Optional): If you would like to change the port for the User Management site, repeat the above steps for that site
Part 2: Service Configuration
Step 1: Open the Component Services manager by clicking on the Start Menu, entering “Services” into the “Search programs and files” box and hitting enter
Step 2: Click on Services (Local), find the “TeamPulse Integration Service”, click on it and stop the service. Minimize the window once done, we’ll need it again in a bit
Step 3: Navigate to where you installed TeamPulse and open the “Integration Service” folder (default is C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\TeamPulse\IntegrationService on a 64-bit machine or C:\Program Files\Telerik\TeamPulse\IntegrationService on a 32 bit machine)
Step 4: Right click on TeamPulse.Integration.Service.config and select open with Notepad
Step 5: Inside the xml file, look for the services section. There are 3 addresses that need to be changed here as pictured below. In each address you will want to change the port (see the boxed items below) to a port that is not currently used (including the one’s the TeamPulse web sites are currently on), save and then close the file
Step 6: Navigate back to the TeamPulse directory and enter the “wwwroot” folder
Step 7: Open the Web Config file in notepad
Step 8 (Optional): If you changed the User Management sites port, in the appSettings section pictured below, you will have to change the port used for the User Management site to the new one you may have set earlier and save the file
Step 9: Look for the client section pictured below and change the port within the endpoint settings to the same one you used in the TeamPulse.Integration.Service.exe.config file. Save and close the file
Step 10: Bring back up the services window and start the service. You’re ready to start using TeamPulse again! Also, make sure to update any shortcuts you may have set up.
