Hi Jan!
Thanks for your feedback! We cannot host our document app in port 443 as it requires admin privileges as a root user. Also there are other restrictions with this port. The only way you can use the document app is if you choose another port on your machine with no such restrictions.
Best regards

Oh. I am talking about the Desktop App (for Windows), not the mobile app for android / ios.

To sum up, there won't be a support for port 443, right?
Thus it is impossible for my company to use the desktop app.

Quote:
"Can I use another port other than 443 for SSL communication?"

"SSL is in no way tied to a single port value; in fact, as a protocol, it can be used over any transport medium, as long as that medium provides a bidirectional stream for arbitrary bytes.

In a Web context, you can use any port other than 443, provided that you specify it in the URL: https://www.example.com:7342/foobar.html
Note that there are some networks (especially some free WiFi access points) that don't allow traffic over other ports than 443 or 80; which means that using a port other than 443, though perfectly standard and supported, may imply some practical usage restrictions."

Hi Kristian!
The information that our support gave to Jan was following:
"The add-on Projectplace for Windows is set up to use a local port in order to communicate with the web browser.
The use of https://projectplace-local.com:54402/ is then a loopback and is used to check if it is running.

When you install local applications it is quite restricted which ports can be used.
Using so called system ports (0-1023) is not recommended. Usually a so called dynamic range is used.
In Projectplace for Windows you can select to use port in the range between 1024 and 66535.

I hope that clarifies the use of port number. "
Kristian, if you have further questions on this I recommend you to get in contact with our support. Here is the email. support@projectplace.com
