I'm pretty sure you can change it to whatever you want.  I think the guy who i used to work with changed it to 8181, 8443, & 8192.  Not sure exactly why but he seemed to have a reason.

also, are you entering in the port number when going to the address?

for example:  http://localhost:xxxx  with xxxx being whatever port # you specified in the xml file
