If the custom channel specifies the same port as a Managed Server's default port, the custom channel and the Managed Server's default channel will each try to bind to the same port, and you will be unable to start the Managed Server. If you assign non-SSL and SSL channels to the same server instance, make sure that they do not use the same combination of address and port number.
Enabling the administration port imposes the following restrictions on your domain: The listen ports for secure and non-secure communication. Support multiple protocols and security requirements. If you do not assign a channel to a server instance, it uses the WebLogic Server default channel, which is automatically configured by WebLogic Server, based on the attributes in ServerMBean or SSLMBean ; the operating system determines the network interface.
You cannot create an outbound only network channel; there always has to be a corresponding inbound interface, port, and protocol associated with the channel. Specify connection and message time-out periods.
When WebLogic Server uses a default network channel as the replication channel, it does not use SSL encryption by default. For Windows , the host file in C: The sections that follow describe network channels and the standard channels that WebLogic Server pre-configures, and discusses common applications for channels.
However, there's a lot more to configuring a network channel than merely specifying the listen port, listen address, and protocol. Reserved Names WebLogic Server uses the internal channel names.
Using Internal Channels Previous version of WebLogic Server allowed you to configure multiple channels for external traffic, but required you to use the default channel for internal traffic between server instances. Impose message size limits.
Administration Port Capabilities An administration port enables you to: To configure a channel for clustered Managed Servers, note the information in Guidelines for Configuring Channels , and follow the guidelines described in the following sections. A default port is required in the event that the server cannot bind to its configured administration port.
After you enable the administration port, you must establish an SSL connection to the Administration Server in order to start any Managed Server in the domain. Create the Cluster If you have not already configured a cluster you can: Previous version of WebLogic Server allowed you to configure multiple channels for external traffic, but required you to use the default channel for internal traffic between server instances.
