Short after installing Connections I always delete the port numbers or change the URL completely in the “LotusConnections-config.xml” file so that Connections Applications could be accessed without typing the port numbers as a part of an URL.
Doing this manually can consume lot of time.
You can automate this process by using the replace function in “Notepad ++” or “UltraEdit” editors as described in following.
I hope this helps. 🙂
