Change HTTPS Port on B1300?

I’d love to change the HTTPS port on my B1300.

The problem I am having is that I want to change the port for HTTPS from 443 to something else.
I’m not an expert but I’m sure there’s a way to change the HTTPS port that my Convexa B router listens on.

I think this is what I need:
SSH into my B1300
vi /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf
find where is shows https is using port 443
change it to something else

Configure Firewall:
change the port on firewall from 443 to something else

reboot B1300

Is this correct?

Thanks in advance!

Do you want to access the router via https from the WAN side?

You should check the files at /etc/lighttpd/conf.d/

The 30-openssl.conf is for https. Just change the port number

To access from wan side, you need to open port with the new number

alshao - thanks for the information. Yes, I do want to access this from the WAN side. So I changed the firewall rule from port 443 to my new port number and it works!

So, if anyone needs to know what I did:
SSH into the B1300
vi /etc/lighttpd/conf.d/30-openssl.conf
changed the following line
$SERVER["socket’] == “” { <— put your port number in place of 443 here
saved the file
went into the firewall via web interface>More Settings>Advanced
Logged in as root
Go to Network>Firewall
Edited the rule called glservice_https to change port to new port number
