Setting up Web Services in IIS 8.5 on a dedicated port RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have successfully migrated a .Net 3.5 web site and web services to a Server 2012 R2 running IIS 8.5.

    I had previously configured the web services to run on dedicated ports to avoid traffic over port 80 as virtual web sites within the root site.

    It seems that the default in IIS 8.5 was to add the services as Applications under the main web site, and by default they appear to run on port 80.

    I would like to know how to move these off to another port. I am looking for information on this so that I can follow the best practice. SSL will also be implemented on the site.

    thanks for any links or reference material.
