Again: what "client" or "web manager"? And what "it"? The only client I know 
is my web browser. It connects to the HTTP or HTTPS connector port. 

I still can't see what would fail after changing the tomcat shutdown port, and 
the AJP connector port. I couldn't find anything that uses the AJP connector, 
so one could probably even disable the AJP connector.

If you want help on that (which might be considered off-topic here), please 
answer this question, and also the question how you installed VMWare server.

Well, one can configure the tomcat for the web access like any other tomcat. 
The tomcat installation is difficut to find though and changes might be 
overwritten by an update.  Apart from that, I don't understand what keeps you 
from configuring it.
