Changing default ICAP port 1344 in Content Security

By default, if QuintoLabs Content Security is configured to integrate with Squid as ICAP server it listens on the local IP on port 1344. This can easily be changed to anything you like by doing the following simple steps from the root command terminal:

# nano /opt/quintolabs/qlproxy/etc/qlproxyd.conf

Then find the icap_port = 1344 setting and change it to the desired port value! Do not forget to restart the qlproxyd daemon by typing in the root terminal:

/etc/init.d/qlproxy restart

You may also need to restart the squid proxy as it may mark the qlproxy ICAP server as inactive:

service squid3 restart

N.B. The restart command for squid may vary for different Linux distributions!
