If a web server is configured to run on some other port
than port 80, then how does the client know where
to connect if it wants to connect to the web server.
Also is there any way to know which port the web server
is running on. Thanx.
Attitude is a small thing that makes a BIG difference.

It's an URL... a Univeral Resource Locator
...something like that, at least... (sorry - off the top of my head)
\"Windows has detected that a gnat has farted in the general vicinity. You must reboot for changes to take affect. Reboot now?\"

The answer may be better illustrated as an example. If JP changed the port that Apache listened to for HTTP requests to port 8080 (because programs that bind to ports above 1024 don't have to be started as root), the URL for AO would look like this: http://www.antionline.com:8080/
The default port for HTTP requests is port 80, so if you visit: http://www.antionline.com:80/ you will be shown the AO homepage.
