How to Change the Default Port for Local Embedded Server

The Visual Paradigm Local Embedded Server enables users to access server-dependent features in their Visual Paradigm desktop application without requiring team collaboration support or an internet connection. By default, the Visual Paradigm desktop application runs the local embedded server on port 2000. If this port conflicts with other services, users can follow the steps below to modify the default embedded server port.

  1. Shutdown Visual Paradigm application.
  2. Delete your local embedded server.
    Windows: %localappdata%\VisualParadigm\embedded_server
    Linux: ~/.config/VisualParadigm/embedded_server
    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/VisualParadigm/embedded_server
    * Delete embedded server will not delete your model data
  3. Create UserSpecific.options file under Visual Paradigm’s configuration directory
    Windows: %localappdata%\VisualParadigm\UserSpecific.options
    Linux: ~/.config/VisualParadigm/UserSpecific.options
    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/VisualParadigm/UserSpecific.options
  4. Add the following line to UserSpecific.options file
    *replace XXXX with your preferred port number

The next time you start up the Visual Paradigm application, the local embedded server will run on the port you specified.
