Using a different port with Cognos 8.4


The result of some specific security measures we were asked to temporarily designate an alternative port for our Cognos 8.4 development environment.

I was under an assumption that this change would be directed through our webserver but quickly discovered that when an e-mail is sent, the link does not honor the specified port number. After some head scratching and paying some much needed attention to the manuals I found the correct solution:
  1. 1. open Cognos Configuration on the server you're using
  2. 2. select Environment
  3. 3. under Gateway Settings, select Gateway URI
  4. 4. change the URI to a fully qualified domain name adding your port number
  5. 5. save and restart
