I'm trying to satisfy DoD STIG ID IISW-SI-000219 which states that all web sites must be bound in site bindings to an assigned IP and an assigned host name and that those sites using HTTP must use port 80, while those using HTTPS must use port 443. So, this is my question: Since SharePoint's service application's web services run as a separate web site, and as such, must also abide by this rule, how can I make these web services run under port 443? I've already changed their host name and IP which worked, but they still run under the standard 32845 port (for HTTPS - I removed the HTTP binding, per another regulation).
I'm using SharePoint 2013 Server.
Does any one know how to change the port number of the service application web services? Is it even possible?
The fact of whether it is a good idea is NOT relevant here. I can't change the requirement given to me.
Thanks for reading.
