Cockpit not works with katello
I have a Foreman+Katello system an when I try to use cockpit on all my systems registered in Foreman, the cockpit button not works.
The issue is related to a conflict with a TCP port. Cockpit use a TCP 9090 port but this port is used for communication with the Smart Proxy.
My workaround is
]# foreman-installer --scenario=katello --foreman-proxy-ssl-port 9093
I propose to change the Smart Proxy default port from 9090 to another.

we're unlikely to change our foreman-proxy default port configuration, is it acceptable to change cockpits?
Technically yes, but I need to modify cockpit on all my servers. Cockpit plugin is active by default and if I alredy use the cockpit on my farm and I want to integrate with foreman/katello i must change all cockpit configuration and all firewall rule.
For me the best way is to specify the --foreman-proxy-ssl-port on my installation string. This is valid only if I install foreman+Katello, if I install only foreman all works fine. My propose is to modify only the katello-answers file, or add a comment in the help like "If you want use the cockpit modify this port"
