This document contains a procedure for configuring NetTen 1.4 to run simultaneously with WebTen. The principle conflict is that the NetTen administration server wants to use port 80 to serve its administration home page which conflicts with WebTen's use of that port. The other issue is that since both products include a DNS server, neither one of them can be used since turning one on would also turn the other on. This requires that the DNS is disabled in the WebTen preferences. This document assumes that you have both WebTen 2.x or higher and NetTen 1.4 or higher installed and configured with DNS disabled. If you do not have this done, do this first before continuing as per instructions in the NetTen manual, but you must configure them separately (i.e. do NOT run them at the same time before executing these instructions).
There are two ways in which NetTen and WebTen can run on the same machine: on separate IP addresses or on the same IP address. When running on separate IP addresses, any conflicts between NetTen and WebTen would be avoided since they would use different networking environments. This is the preferred method. For NetTen and WebTen to run on the same IP address, the configuration is a bit more complicated than the previous. This document contains two sets of instructions, one for each of the possible configurations. It is a good idea to read the installation instructions in the respecive manuals for both WebTen and NetTen to get familiar with
Since NetTen and WebTen do not operate with the same IP address in this configuration, they can be configured completely independently. Remember to make separate DNS entries for each IP address.
Since the NetTen administration server is now running on port 8080 (or your choice), you will need to access it at http://host.domain.com:8080 for the home page and http://host.domain.com:82 for the Post.Office administration server. Since both the NetTen DNS/HTTP configuration server and the WebTen administration server are running on port 84, you can't access one directly after using the other. For example, if you had just changed the HHTP port of NetTen, you would not be able to use the WebTen admin server becuase of a conflict over port 84 (restarting NetTen will clear this conflict). This also means that it would not be possible to change the HTTP port with the WebTen admin server started.
