Confluence tomcat connector will not start listening on redirector port 9446 on service start

Confluence tomcat connector will not start listening on redirector port 9446 on service start.

We've tried switching the port number but same results.

Here is the server.xml below.

Tomcat starts and we can connect on 8092.  So its not that all ports aren't working, its just 9446. We have an old instance that works but unable to get the new one working.

Hi @Bruce Guy 

You can specify the port when installing Confluence, try re-installing confluence and give the input port 9446

If you have solved the issue, feel free to post the answer!!
