Note: You need to ensure that the newly selected port is not blocked by a Firewall between the involved hosts.
1. On your VMM Server, open the Registry.
2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager Server\Settings.
3. Locate BITSTcpPort which should have a value of decimal 443. Change this to some port unused in your environment. (e.g. 8500)
4. Restart Virtual Machine Manager Service so that the change takes effect.
