Listen on different ports?



  • Can the gui listen on different ports at the same time.

    Example, 80, 8080, 443, 8088?

    I want to open the port to access from outside, but don't want to open port 80, want to have a different port and stay away from intruders.

    Inside want to have port 80 listening because I have squid+wpad running.

    Is possible?

    PF 2.0.3, thanks.

    I'm not sure I understand. Why don't you just forward a different external port to port 80?



  • System –> Advanced --> TCP port



  • @GruensFroeschli:

    I"m not sure that's what he's asking… he wanted to run the UI twice. Once on port 80 and again on some other port.



  • I'm not sure how many ports the GUI can listen on, but you can NAT as many ports as you like to whichever port the GUI is listening on…

    There is a catch.  You will need to keep it either HTTPS or HTTP, so far as I know.  Either or.



  • Ah sorry i didn't read right.

    But the solution of kejianshi is what i'd do in such a case.
    Simply forward the desired port(s) from the WAN to the LAN-interface or localhost.



  • Got it, port forward outside 8088 to internal 80, that could work.
      Thanks guys.



  • And then there is the minor issue of DNS Rebind Check…  I'll wait for it to crop up.
