You can configure the TCP port that's used to listen for SIP requests on a Client Access server running the Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging Call Router service. By default, when you install a Client Access server, the SIP TCP listening port number is set to 5060 and the Client Access server starts in TCP mode. The SIP TCP listening port can't be configured by using the EAC. You must configure the SIP TCP listening port number using the Set-UMCallRouterSettings cmdlet.

You may have to configure the TCP listening port to 5061 if your VoIP gateways, IP PBXs, or Session Borders Controllers (SBCs) are configured to use a TCP port other than the SIP standard 5060.

You can only configure Client Access server TCP and TLS ports. You can’t configure the ports for an Exchange 2013 Mailbox server. However, you can use the Set-UMService cmdlet to configure the TCP and TLS listening ports for Exchange 2010 UM servers.

For additional tasks related to Unified Messaging and Client Access servers, see UM Services Procedures.
