Product Settings

Product Settings allow you to change the connection, logging, language, theme, and GDPR settings.

  2. Navigate to Admin → General Settings → Product Settings.

  2. Enter the port number and click Save.
  3. Note: Exchange Reporter Plus is configured with a default certificate, which is not valid for an SSL connection. You have to add either another third-party certificate or self-signed certificate for this purpose.

Changes in the port settings will reflect only when you restart the Exchange Reporter Plus server.
