I am setting up a software on a dedicated machine that I would like to be accessible from most places, through corporate firewalls, etc. I need to specify two ports for the software and I'm looking for some sort of report indicating which ports are open and accessible through firewalls.
One of the ports I'm thinking about is port 80 (
http). The other I'm considering is 8080.
I heard that using 443 (
https) is a bad idea, especially if we're not using
https on it, because that might confuse the firewall systems.
