M220: setup configuration file

Hi all,

I had to make some changes to the application.properties file in order to get the Spring front end to start and connect to it:

added the line:
server.address=localhost

not sure if the above is totally needed. I was trying different things when getting the port error

changed the port # to 5001
the AirPlay controller is using port 5000, so changing the port number in the properties file was easier than changing where AirPlay was looking

Hi @Stefan_Constantinides,

Welcome to the MongoDB Community forums :sparkles:

There could be a reason that some other application might be using your localhost port 5000.

Also, what specific port error were you getting, could you please share with us?

Best,
