123 Live Help Server Software needs at least ONE free port. The default port is: 8969.
123 Live Help Server Software can listen to two ports simultaneously to guarantee the accessibility:
a low one (<1024) and a high one (1024~65535).
To ensure your users don't have to configure a firewall before accessing 123 Live Help, the low port can be set to 90 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 Live Help Server Software has a built-in web server JUST for testing purpose. The default port value for this web server is 8988.
Note: In Linux, only root user can start the ports below 1024.
