How to set a port different to the default port on EnsLib.HTTP.OutboundAdapter using HTTPS

We have a webserver which is using a port different to 443 for HTTPS communication. I can connect from the terminal session but not via the EnsLib.HTTP.OutboundAdapter. 

the example used in Terminal:

set httprequest=##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()
set httprequest.Server="appserver"
set httprequest.Port="4999"
set httprequest.Https=1
set httprequest.SSLConfiguration="app server"
do httprequest.SetHeader("Custom","cust")
set httprequest.ContentType="application/json"
do httprequest.EntityBody.CopyFrom(jsonfile)
do httprequest.Post("/FHIR/Bundle")

And this is my method using the EnsLib.HTTP.OutboundAdapter:

Method PostJSONObjectTemp(pRequest As MyProduction.PostFHIRRESTRequestTemp, pResponse As Ens.Response) As %Status
  Try { 
    Set httprequest=##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()
    set httprequest.Server = "appserver"
    set httprequest.Https = 1
    set httprequest.Port = "4999"
    set httprequest.SSLConfiguration = "app server"
    Do httprequest.SetHeader("Custom","cust")
    set httprequest.ContentType="application/json"
    Set httpresponse=##class(%Net.HttpResponse).%New() 
set status = ..Adapter.SendFormData(httpresponse,"POST",httprequest,"",pRequest.FHIRResourceAsJSON)
    //If the adaptor returns an error, throw to catch block
  catch ex {
    //Return error status. Will be put in Event Log
    set tSC = ex.AsStatus()
return tSC

In my communication logs I see that always port 443 (Default) is used. How can I change it?

Hi Jens,

You need to setup the port in the adapter settings.

In the method SendFormDataArray all adapter settings is passed to http request object.

The Adapter Settings are also not taken into account if I do not pre-populate the properties of the %Net.HTTPRequest object in my method and call the adapter method without it:

set status = ..Adapter.SendFormDataURL(..Adapter.URL,httpresponse,"POST",,"",pRequest.FHIRResourceAsJSON) 

Always port 443 is used.
