- Click the Configuration Icon for for the Service Instance to modify.
- Change the Host and Port number fields to the desired values.

ServiceControl Management will then validate the settings changes and restart the service to apply the changes.

[Program Files]\Particular Software\ServicePulse\app\config.js.
