If the server where you are planning to install GroupWise Mobile Server has Apache and Tomcat running on it, you must stop them before installing GroupWise Mobile Server.
The Secure Gateway Module of GroupWise Mobile Server automatically uses the same port numbers that Apache is configured with by default. Initially, the Secure Gateway is installed on the same server where you perform the GroupWise Mobile Server installation, but it can be installed later on additional Linux servers. For detailed installation instructions, see the GroupWise Mobile Server 3 Getting Started Guide and the Intellisync Mobile Suite Installation Guide on the GroupWise Mobile Server 3 Documentation Web site.
If you want to continue to run Apache and Tomcat on the same server where you are installing GroupWise Mobile Server, some post-installation reconfiguration is required. For detailed installation instructions, see the GroupWise Mobile Server 3 Getting Started Guide and the Intellisync Mobile Suite Installation Guide on the GroupWise Mobile Server 3 Documentation Web site.
