# How to change the default port for vnc?

I am trying to reconfigure the nova-novncproxy server to listen to port 5985 instead of 6080. This is because the openstack nodes are residing on a separate network in front of our corp firewall which only allowed a handful of ports, 5985 being one of them. I reconfigured the [vnc] section in /etc/nova/nova.conf on the compute node as follow: [vnc]

enabled = True
server_listen = 0.0.0.0
