Yes, you can change in the LiveUpdate policy

Go into your policy

Server Settingd tab >> Group Update Provider button >> Under Group Update Provider Settings change the default port from 2967 to whatever you want to use.

Please click the "Mark as solution" link at bottom left on the post that best answers your question. This will benefit admins looking for a solution to the same problem.

From the GUP policy, you could change the GUP port.

By default it is set as 2967.
