Need to change the port that upstart (init) is listening on

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have an application which needs to use port 7001 and we need to move upstart to use a different port. Sometimes upstart seems to use 7001, sometimes it uses other numbers.

    # netstat -an|grep upstart
    unix  2      [ ACC ]     STREAM     LISTENING     7001   @/com/ubuntu/upstart

    How can we make this process never use port 7001 so that it doesn't conflict with our application?
