Changing the default ports

By default, the Qlik NPrinting web console is set to port 4993. The NewsStand is set to port 4994. These can be changed by editing the webengine.config file. This file is typically located under: C:\Program files\NPrintingServer\NPrinting\Webengine\Qlik.NPrinting.Webengine.config.

Warning: You should always backup your Qlik NPrinting repository before editing a .config file. See: Backing up Qlik NPrinting.

Do the following:

  1. Stop the Qlik NPrinting web engine service.
  2. Open the webengine.config file in a text editor.
  3. Update these strings with your preferred port values:
    • <add key="webconsole-proxy-port" value="4993" />
    • <add key="newsstand-proxy-port" value="4994" />
  4. Save the file.
  5. Start the Qlik NPrinting web engine service.
