            LCS with conflicting port 8080

            Problem: LCS with conflicting port 8080

            Cause: Another piece of software is using port 8080

            Solution(s): Create a registry key to change the port.

            NOTE: Remote update from Teacher Console or Tech Console to students does not preserve that new port and will set it back to port 8080

            LanSchool Connection Server Machine:

            If the following registry value exists on the Connection Server, it will read that value and bind to that port number, instead of 8080

                ConnectionServerPort  REG_SZ  <NewPortNumber>

            You will need to create both the "LanSchool" key as well as the string value named "ConnectionServerPort", since these values are not created by the install.

            NOTE: This path is directly under HKLM\SOFTWARE\, even though it is on a 64-bit PC. (Usually the Registry path on 64-bit machines is HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node).

            Student Machine:

            Once the ConnectionServerPort is is set on the LCS machine, you will need to also modify the registry on the Student machines and set the port number in the following Registry value to match the one that was set for the Connection Server, above.
                32bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\LanSchool
                ConnectionServerPort  REG_SZ  <NewPortNumber>

                64bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\LanSchool
                ConnectionServerPort  REG_SZ  <NewPortNumber>

            This can be automated by scripting the student install as follows:

            msiexec /i student.msi /qn ADVANCED_OPTIONS=1 LCS=<NewPortNumber>
