Hi Jun Zhou

Yes It is possible to modify the Port number. you can change it to another port with change in server.xml.

Just go to the path, where your Apache tomcat has installed. Ex: C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 8.0\conf . In conf folder you will find the server.xml where you can change the port number. You can see the below image for reference, I am using 8095.

Do let me know in case of any question.

The Thingworx connection service can only connect to the Thingworx's 8080 port.Why is that?

By Default port number for Tomcat is 8080. If we Will use Tomcat for something else other then ThingWorx then also 8080 will be there.

ThingWorx can connect to Tomcat if in case we are using any other port. It is not something specific to ThingWorx.

Just to add an FYI to this...

If you're working with National Instruments devices/software, there's an NI Application Service running by default on port 8080. So best to avoid this for your tomcat... otherwise you'll get a cryptic Error 404 when trying to access the Tomcat default page.
