This article outlines instructions on how to configure PowerP2V to use a different Web Services port other than port 80.


PowerP2V relies on Web Services in order to function properly.  By default, the port for Web Services is 80.  However, in cases where it may not be possible to use port 80 (i.e.  security restrictions), a different port number can be configured for PowerP2V if required.

In order to change the port, you will need to do the following:

  • Edit the web.config file in the C:\Program Files\PlateSpin PowerP2V Server\Web directory on your PowerP2V Server.  In this file you will see the following line:

         <add key="OperationsFrameworkServer" value="http://localhost:80/ofxweb" />

         Edit this line to reflect the desired port.  For example, if you wanted to use port 8080 instead, the line should now appear as follows:

         <add key="OperationsFrameworkServer" value=" http://localhost:8080/ofxweb " />  

  • Once you have applied the above change you will also need to change the port of the IIS Server to use the same port that was specified in the web.config file. 
  • Restart both the IIS service and the MSSQL$PLATESPIN_P2V services
  • When launching the PowerP2V client afterwards for the first time, you may receive an error as the client will initially attempt to connect to the PowerP2V Server on port 80.  A dialog box will appear asking for the proper URL of your PowerP2V server.  Enter in the correct URL which should be in the format:

          http://localhost:<port>/PowerP2V     -> where <port> is the new port number
