Changing the web server port for communication with Google Chrome

The default web server port for communication between Google Chrome and HCL OneTest™ UI is set on the Webserver Configuration page in the Preferences dialog box in HCL OneTest UI, as well as in the options for the HCL OneTest UI for Google Chrome™ extension. If this default port is already in use on the workstation where you are testing applications in Google Chrome, change it and specify an available port.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that you have enabled the Google Chrome browser for functional testing.
  • The web server port is used when you enable the Google Chrome browser manually in the Enable Environments for Testing dialog box. By default, the port 9100 is set for the web server. If this port is already in use, change it and specify an available port.
    Note: If you change the port in the Options for the extension, ensure that you also make the same change on the Webserver Configuration page in the HCL OneTest UI Preferences dialog box. For more information, see the related topic named Webserver Configuration page.
