The fact that the FMS installer couldn't grab ports 80/443 is probably still there so you changing the ports in the config files doesn't really solve anything. Turn off the web publishing engine and then do a port scan or netstat to try and find out what is using those ports.
By leaving the ports on 81 and 444 you should still be able to access your server, provided that you specify those ports in the URL (and that your firewall/router is open and forwarding on those ports).
I did a port scan with the FMS on and off and both ports 80 & 443 showed up as open and running http/https respectively. The Web Publishing Engine shows a green light while the Web Server shows a grey light. This was not the case on the Mac I ran it on when both Admin Console and Web Direct worked. Do you know why it is off?
Also the Web Server says HTTP is on port 80 and HTTPS is on port 443.
What other things would you check to solve this?
Also it might be worth noting the computer is configured as a server and is not connected to the internet; as in it cannot access webpages that are hosted such as filemaker.com or apple.com, websites that are typically accessible by other computers in China.
Can anyone help me with this?
