Listener Name

Description

A unique name for this listener.

Type

Description

The Layer 7 listener type.

An “http” listener treats requests as an HTTP Request, so it will parse the request data to use for load balancing.

A “tcp” listener will not parse request data. Only the client’s IP address and port are parsed for load balancing.

Syntax

Select from drop down list

IP Address

Description

Specifies the IP of this listener. All available IP addresses are listed. IPv6 addresses are enclosed in "[ ]".

To listen on all IPv4 IP addresses, select ANY. To listen on all IPv6 IP addresses, select [ANY] IPv6. If No is selected for setting Bind IPv6 Only, selecting [ANY] IPv6 will listen on IPv4 addresses as well.

By default, LiteSpeed uses separate listeners for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Should the need to serve both IPv4 and IPv6 arise, separate listeners should be created for each.

Tips

If your machine has multiple IPs on different sub-networks, you can select a specific IP to only allow traffic from the corresponding sub-network.

Port

Description

Specifies the TCP port of the listener. Only the super user ("root") can use ports lower than 1024. Port 80 is the default HTTP port. Port 443 is the default HTTPS port.

Syntax

Integer number

Secure

Description

Specifies whether this is a secure (SSL) listener. For secure listeners, additional SSL settings need to be set properly.
