By default IBM® Lotus® Quickr™ for WebSphere Portal uses the internal HTTP transport within IBM WebSphere® Application Server to handle requests. WebSphere Application Server also supports the use of an external Web server, so that you can access Lotus Quickr from your Web server.
By default, Lotus Quickr is configured to be accessed through the internal HTTP port in WebSphere Application Server. For example, http://hostname.example.com
:10040/lotus/quickr, where hostname.example.com
is the fully qualified host name of the machine where Lotus Quickr is running and 10040 is the default transport port that is created by WebSphere Application Server.
After configuring Lotus Quickr to use an external Web server, you will access the system with the Web server host name and port (80). To access the system using the Lotus Quickr host name and port, there must be a corresponding virtual host definition for that port in the WebSphere Application Server configuration.
Many of the Lotus Quickr configuration tasks rely on the WpsHostName
properties from the wkplc.properties
file. You must ensure that Lotus Quickr can be accessed using the host name and port specified by these property values.
Modify the WpsHostName
property values to specify the Web server host name and port or the host and port in use by the HTTP transport in WebSphere Application Server. With standard configurations, the ports for HTTP access to the Web server and WebSphere Application Server are 80 and 10040 respectively.
