Webcam 7 on Port 80, a Risk?


#1

I have a question, is it unusual the run Webcam7 on Porto 80 instead Port 8080 ? Because, some with Firewall’s might be not able to contact Port 8080 while blocked, Port 80 is never a Problem…


#2

Do not use port 80 since port 80 is used for many other things. The only Firewall that is important is the one that Webcam7 is running inside. You can select any port number (more or less) as long as you use port forward in the firewall (in the router). I assume that the default port numer 8080 in Webcam7 can be changed to something else if you want.
