I've followed the documentation in the Teaming 2 Administration Guide for making Tomcat redirect http to https (18.3.2 Forcing Secure HTTP Connections.)

I have also followed the instructions in the Installation Guide to set up port forwarding (3.1.4 Setting Up Port Forwarding)

When I go to http://teamingserver I get redirected to https://teamingserver:8443 which times out because 8443 isn't open on the firewall.

What is the best way to get around this? One option seems to be to tell Tomcat to point at 443 rather than 8443. For instance, in server.xml there is the following

<Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true" maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false" (etc...) >

Is it simply a matter of changing this to 443?

Or would it be better to open up 8443 in SuSE's firewall?
