It may be desirable to block port 80 (the non-SSL HTTP port) being used in the MVCM Tomcat web server. Although no privileged information is passed to the and from the MVCM web server using the non-SSL HTTP port 80, occasionally this is requested by administrators.
To block port 80 in the MVCM Tomcat web server, edit the file /usr/tomcat/conf/server.xml. Find the block of code that follows "Define a non-SSL/TLS HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080":
Delete, or comment out the Connector port= line, the connectionTimeout line and the redirectPort line by adding "<!--" and "-->" before and after the block of code. The new file will now look like this:
Note: You will need to make this change after every MVCM upgrade, as new versions of Tomcat will overwrite the existing /usr/tomcat/conf/server.xml file.
