I would like to configure Acronis Files Connect (formerly ExtremeZ-IP) to listen on a port other than the default. Is this possible?
You can configure Acronis Files Connect to listen on a port other than the default. The default setting is port 548.
In Acronis Files Connect 2.1 and later, you can simply adjust the port via the Acronis Files Connect Administrator program.
It is possible to connect to a shared volume on another port by specifying the port as part of the server address. For example, you can connect to an AFP server running on port 549 by specifying "fileserver.example.com:549" in the Mac OS X "Connect to Server..." dialog. When Acronis Files Connect 5.0 is running on a port other than 548, a warning notice will be displayed in the main Acronis Files Connect Administrator window. If you are running Acronis Files Connect as your primary AFP server and you're seeing this warning, you will want to make sure you have the SFM service disabled and that the Acronis Files Connect AFP port setting in the "Settings" dialog is set to port 548.
In order for the client to connect from Mac OS 9, they will need to click the "Server IP Address..." in the Chooser and enter ": " -- for example, "192.168.1.1:549". If the client machine is on the local AppleTalk network, they can simply select the item in the Chooser and it should work. Note that the Network Browser in Mac OS 9 does not work correctly for machines that do not use the default port.
