By default, an Application Object Server (AOS) instance runs on port 2712. Subsequent instances are assigned TCP/IP ports dynamically. You can set a different static port for an instance using the Server Configuration Utility.

You may want to set a different port when:

  • The firewall you are using restricts you to use specific TCP/IP ports.

  • You have multiple AOS instances running on a computer, and always want to know what they are.

  1. Open the Server Configuration utility ( Start> Administrative Tools> Microsoft Dynamics AX Server Configuration Utility).

  2. Verify that the currently selected AOS instance and configuration are the ones you want to modify.

  3. On the Application Object Servertab, in the TCP/IP portbox, type the port you want the instance to run on, click Apply, and then click OK.
