[REBOL] Re: Opening Specific Ports

From: antonr:iinet:au at: 12-Nov-2003 18:45

Yeah, I think it's not a big issue. I think when you connect to a web server on port 80, that's port 80 on the *server* computer side. Who cares which port your client machine connects to it with. You could have ten programs, each making requests on different ports to the same port 80 web server. Firewall rules (on client) just classify that as an outgoing connection on port 80 . It means "*to* port 80". I could be wrong, but that's my impression. Anton.
