123 Flash Chat Server Software can listen to two ports simultaneously to guarantee the accessibility:
To ensure your users don't have to configure a firewall before accessing 123 Flash Chat, the low port can be set to 99 or 443, since it is allowed by most users' firewalls.
But remember, ports below 1024 can only be accessed using flash player 7 or 8. That's why you may set a high port (1024~65535) to serve lower version flash player.
123 Flash Chat Server Software has a built-in web server JUST for testing purpose. The default port value for this web server is 35555.
Note: In Linux, only root user can start the ports below 1024.
