Global companies are more and more focused on IT security aspect. They want to control all pieces of data transfered via their network and only allow traffic/accesses if it is absolutely required. Therefore there is a need to segment inbound/outgoing traffic for every applications, based on connections' purposes.

In light of this, it would be a great idea to allow Tomact server from LiveUpdate Administrator (LUA) to listen on more than one port (currently 8080 or 7070 depending on build). This would allow administrators to set up dedicated ports for default local Distribution Centers (clu-prod/clu-test). As an extension of this, it would be very interesting to give the possibility to setup a dedicated port for LUA administration accesses.

Current way to achieve this is to use additional 3rd party webserver (i.e. IIS) to host local Distribution Centers on one/two ports, and to leave LUA Tomcat port for administration only. Having such options embedded with LUA would add significant value to the product.

Please evaluate the practibility of this enhencement.

Thanks.
