HP Smart Media Server port conflict RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use the machine for local backup purposes with no problem

    I have a web server installed on my local network on port 80: (

    As I am supposed to also install the Smart Server on the same port (I've tried), there is a wild conflict and my web server does not operate properly.

    I have tried to use another port, using one of my hosted servers, say 8080 (http://www.dbleveque.com:8080), with a NAT addressing the Smart Server IP #:,but it does not work. I have tried a few other ports with no success.

    Any suggestion?

  • Hi Daniel,
    according to your description I am not fully sure, what for a conflict you mean.
    Each of your webservers uses port 80, but with a different IP address.
    So here can happen no conflict internally.

    If you mean, that your router mixes up port forwarding (what is what I assume):
    Your router needs to forward at least ports 443 and 4125 to your MediaSmart server. Port 80 can, but is no must, if you use only https for remote access to your home server. In this case you can forward port 80 directly to port 80 for the IP address of your local webserver.
    If you wish to address your home server via http, you can do so, but in this case you will have to select a different port on your router to be forwarded to one of the both servers, i.e. forward port 8080 to port 80 on your webserver.
    So you would address this machine from outside via http://myserver.homeserver.com:8080
    Best greetings from Germany
