Host Ports

Is it possible to change the host settings so that the only outgoing port required is 443 ? My works PC is behind various corporate firewalls and I think they've recently blocked 565* as I'm trying to work from home today and it won't connect.

Hello Paul,

Thanks for the question.

This is what our Gateway Mediation Server can be used for. You can set the port used by GMS to 443 and this will be the only port that has to be open on the Host side (an outgoing one, that is).

However, for the "vanilla" Internet ID connection, i.e. using our intermediary servers, other outgoing ports should be open, as listed in this knowledge base article

Hope that helps.
