Changing Port Numbers

Hi,

We've been using Alfresco as a document repository for a learning management system, but have run into the problem where users in other organisations cannot access it as their firewalls block port 8080. Thus, we need to move it to a different port.

For reference, we're using windows/tomcat.

I attempted to change the port number in Alfresco\tomcat\conf\server.xml, like this:

    <Connector port="8282" URIEncoding="UTF-8" protocol="HTTP/1.1" 
               connectionTimeout="20000"
               redirectPort="8443" />

When I do that, and then restart tomcat, however, I get 'page cannot be displayed' errors indicating that the server can't be reached (even just to look at the tomcat success page). I know something has changed, because the original urls no longer work, but the new port isn't actually working.

What have I done wrong? Any ideas?
