WMS HTTP Server Control Protocol

The WMS HTTP Server Control Protocol plug-in is used to control HTTP streaming from your server. You can configure the following options on the General tab for this plug-in.

 

Item Description

IP addresses

Settings in this area define how the control protocol can use IP addresses on your server.

Allow all IP addresses to use this protocol

Select this option to allow all of the IP addresses on your server to use HTTP when streaming content.

Allow selected IP addresses to use this protocol

Select this option to allow only those IP addresses you select in the IP address list to use HTTP when streaming content. This option is useful if you have created multiple IP addresses on your server.

Port selection

Settings in the area define the port used by the control protocol.

Use default port

Select this option to use the default HTTP streaming port 80.

Use other port

Select this option to specify a different port to use with HTTP streaming, and then type the port you want to use in the space provided.

noteNote
Using Windows Media Services and a Web service such as Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) concurrently on a server can cause conflicts because both services try to bind to port 80 by default. You can avoid port conflicts by assigning Windows Media Services to a different port or by creating additional IP addresses so that each service can use port 80 on a separate IP address. For more information, see Using HTTP streaming and other services on the same computer.

noteNote
If a server control protocol plug-in is enabled on a Windows Media server with multiple network adapters, you can prevent IP addresses from using a certain protocol by selecting those addresses in Allow selected IP addresses to use this protocol. If you select Allow selected IP addresses to use this protocol but don't select any of the IP addresses listed, all IP addresses will be allowed to use the protocol. If you do not want to allow any of the IP addresses to use the protocol, you should disable the server control protocol plug-in.
