Hello Experts,

    when testing against my PC, what port numbers are safe to use ?
i know, certain ranges are reserved for internal use ( 0 - 1023 ), 8080 works ok ,
is there any other ports that i can use ?

Regards,
Alex

You might review the list of "well-known" ports. While there is nothing technically stopping you from using any of them, you may encounter issues if another program has registered to use one of those ports.
