SAP Platform Cloud Connector has a utility named changeport.bat (in Windows) or (Linux OS and Mac OS X).

If you want to use the port 8442, you only need to execute these steps

  1. Start a command prompt as Administrator (run as Administrator option)
  2. Run the command: changeport.bat 8442
  3. You will see the following output:

C:\SAP\scc20>changeport 8442
Adjusted port from 8443 to 8442.
Created backup of original default-server.xml
Modification of config files finished successfully.
Cloud Connector UI can now be reached via port 8442

Alternatively, you can modify the connector configuration line in the file: tomcat-server.xml
