Shotgun Desktop: Something blocking port 9000 (OSX)


some process called cslistener is using port 9000 on OSX which means our SG desktop integration doesn’t work.
Is there a way to find out what this process is? Or use a different port?

You can set the port used at the bottom of Site Preferences -> Advanced. This will change it for all users.

From what I remember, cslistener is used by Checkpoint Firewall. So if you’re using that… that is what it is.

Yeah I got that far too but unfortunately it’s not that, we don’t use that firewall software.

But thanks! I’ll look into changing the port :slight_smile:

Hmm, I do not see a port option in my Advanced Settings :confused:

Hey @Ricardo_Musch, you’ll need to put a support ticket in for this one.
A couple of things to keep in mind, this will change it for all users, not just Mac users.
Each machine will then need to be configured with a Desktop configuration file:

Where you set the port to match the new port set in Shotgun:
