Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

its browser dependent
keeping it under 256 is pretty safe

  Hi!
It depends on the client what the supported length of URL is.
However URLs are capped at 255 characters due to many old proxies and other http servers
that don't support larger URLs than 255 chars.
