Move scanner to a new port

so media scanner runs on port 8000. i have a computer that needs to use that prot for somthing else. can i force media scanner to run on a different port.
i saw in the config for Casparcg there is a port setting. does that only tell the server where to look for the scanner?

You can change the scanner connection port by using a command line switch. To make the scanner listen on port 8012 start the scanner with a command line:

scanner.exe --http.port 8012

Set the server config entry to the same port number.

i will give this a try.
