I have set up
IIS 7.5 with some web applications, that are meant for internal use as well as for some of our customers.
The information inside them is important to some extent, but not like credit card data. Just customer details, i.e. email addresses and passwords (for login purposes) ... this is probably the most sensitive data.
I have web forms authentication set up for logins. Currently the port open is
:80xx and not
80. So the user has to enter...
www.ourdomainname.com:80xx to get to the application. I do not want that extra ip at the end.
- What are the disadvantages to using port 80? And do I have to be
- concerned about any security issues?
