<!– A HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080 –>

<Connector protocol=”HTTP/1.1? port=”9090? address=”${jboss.bind.address}”
connectionTimeout=”20000? redirectPort=”8443? />

2) Start the server as follows
run.bat -Djboss.service.binding.set=<ports-01> -c <servername>
run.bat -Djboss.service.binding.set=ports-01 -c default

3) shutdown a specific server in multi server setup
shutdown -s jnp://localhost:1199 -u <username> -p <password> –> increment 100 if you use ports-02 (1299)

Note : – Djboss.service.binding.set=ports-01 instruct jboss to increment the ports used internally by 100. There are lots of ports used by jboss for each instance of servers.
If you use ports-02 then it will increment it by 200. These values are important to know as it is required to stop the instance using JNP.
