Host a server on ports

Custom ports

Custom ports help you host a server and make it accessible across your organization.

By default, few ports are reserved by NimbleBox. You can find the details below:

The range of custom ports on NimbleBox is from 3000 to 9000.

Here is how you can configure a custom port on NimbleBox:

1

Go to the Build section of your workspace, and select the instance you want to host.

2

Navigate to the settings page, scroll to the 'Custom Ports' section, and click 'Manage Ports.'

3

Type the key and enter the port number you want to host. Then click 'Add Port.'

Public ports

You can host your service using public ports and make it available to any user worldwide.

Unlike custom ports, public ports don't require users to have a NimbleBox account or access to the instance.

To add a new public port:

1

From Build, go to 'Settings' and scroll down to the 'Ports' section.

2

Then, click the 'Manage Ports' button and switch to the 'Public' tab.

3

Enter the key and port number. Then, select 'Add Port' to host your service.

To view the list of all public ports:

1

Select the 'Settings' option from the instance and scroll down to the 'Ports' section.

2

Under 'Ports,' expand the 'Public Ports' to view all available public ports.

3

Visit the hosted service by clicking the -> icon.

To delete a public port:

1

From Build, Go to the 'Settings' of your instance and scroll down to the 'Ports' section.

2

Next, click 'Manage Ports' and choose the 'Public' tab.

3

You can delete a port by clicking the delete icon next to it.
