See also Reconfiguring internal services to run on a custom port if you wish to reconfigure any of the internal services to run on another custom port.

CAST Imaging front end runs by default on port 80 in ≤ 2.0.0-beta5 or port 8083 (or the first free port available after 8083) in ≥ 2.0.0-beta6. To reconfigure the service to run over a secure connection (for example port 443), edit the following file:

Microsoft Windows traditional installer:
Docker Installer extension (located in the folder created when unzipping the extension):

Microsoft Windows via traditional installer

This file is located in the protected %APPDATA% location, therefore you must open the file with elevated permission (this is usually achieved by right clicking your text editor in the Windows start menu and selecting Run as administrator):


You may need to use elevated permissions to edit this file (for example use sudo).

Locate the "server {" block:

server {

	# Running port
	listen 8083;

Add/modify as follows - using settings to suit your environment:

server {

	# Running port
    listen              443 ssl;
    ssl_certificate     path/to/file.crt;
    ssl_certificate_key path/to/file.key;
    ssl_protocols       TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
    ssl_ciphers         HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5;

Save the file and ensure that you restart the CAST Imaging System - imaging-fe Windows service or the nginx Docker container in order for the new configuration to be taken into account.
