Changing the Default Port

By default, the Kapsel command line interface is configured to use port 8083, as this is the default used for the cockpit when installing SAP Mobile Platform Server.


If port 8083 is in use during installation, the installer automatically assigns a different port and notifies you. If the port number changes from 8083, you can change it using the command line.


  1. Open a command prompt window, or terminal.
  2. Specify the server paramater in the format server:port, for example:
    kapsel deploy <com.mycompany.app_ID> <localhost:<port> <Admin_user_name> <Admin_password> 
    This example shows how to deploy the Kapsel application called "" using port 8084.
    kapsel deploy localhost:8084 smpAdmin s3pAdmin
