Assign a Unique Identity
An HTTP virtual server is identified on the network by a unique combination of IP address, TCP port, SSL port, and host name. You can change the Domain Name System (DNS) entry by editing the server's properties or editing the host file.
Important If you differentiate a virtual server by host name only, additional steps are necessary to direct the browser to access a specific virtual server. The reason for this is that multiple virtual servers use the same ports.
To assign a unique identity:
|IP address||Select (All Unassigned) or choose a specific IP address generated from the available network cards.|
|Host name||Type a unique name to identify the virtual server on the network. This option is required to create a DNS entry for the virtual server.|
|TCP port||Type a new port number if the default port of 80 is already in use. If you are using SSL in addition to a regular channel, you must change this port number and the SSL port.|
|SSL port||Type a new port number to use a secure channel. If you are using SSL in addition to a regular channel, you must change this port number and the SSL port.|
Important If you change the TCP port and leave the SSL port at the default setting of 443, SSL requests sent to this new virtual server go to the default virtual server managed by Internet Information Services (IIS).
