Disable ports and their associated transport chains



Search Tips   |   Advanced Search


Transport chains cannot be disabled the same way that HTTP transports can be disabled. Because you cannot have multiple HTTP transports associated with the same port, when you disable an HTTP transport, you effectively disable the associated port and stop all traffic on that port. However, the process is more complicated for a port that has associated transport chains because multiple transport chains might be associated with the same port, and you might not want to disrupt traffic on all of the transport chains at the same time.


Before you begin

Determine whether you want to disable a particular transport chain or all of the transport chains that are associated with a specific port.


About this task

You might need to disable a transport chain if you want to temporarily stop all incoming traffic on a particular port or on a particular transport chain that is associated with that port.

To disable a specific transport chain:



  1. In the administrative console, click...

    Servers | Application servers | server | Ports

  2. In the list of available ports, locate the port that you want to delete and click View associated transports for that port.

  3. Click the transport chain you want to disable.

  4. Unselect the Enabled field, and click OK. If you want to temporarily stop all of the incoming traffic on a port, repeat this step for all of the transport chains associated with this port.

  5. Click Save to save your changes.


What to do next

When you want traffic to resume on these disabled transport chains, repeat the preceding steps for all of the transport chains you disabled, and select the Enabled field.
