  • What port does GPSSecure use to communicate?

    I'll probably be using this over my GPRS connection and I want to make sure I'm not going to be charged for data. What port does GPSSecure use?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    5550. They charge you for certain ports?

      Yeah - anything beside the standard ones. Technically, they say they charge you for all non-cellular data traffic but the standards don't get charged. Any way that we can set the port?

      Thanks,

        I'll take that back. I guess with the migration to Cingular I no longer have to worry about it. Looking forward to using your software!

          In the UK, we could do with it using port 8080 for its data as we get semi-free traffic over port 8080.

            I'm not a port guru but will this interfere with other traffic? That sounds like a good port to switch everything to, especially for those who have firewalls. Just that one concern.

              According to http://www.computerhope.com/jargon/p/port.htm port 8080 is an HTTP alternative. (Same for port 8008). Some ISPs like to block certain ports. For example, my ISP, RoadRunner, blocks port 21 which is FTP. Not a problem though because I just set up my FTP server to run on port 999 and everything works great. 8080, in theory, should not cause you any problems.

              For best results though, I would make it so the user can choose what port to run on.

                  I'm still thinking about how I am going to do this. I'm rewritting the socket stuff to be more efficient and provide differant information so I'll definitelly address this. I've had so much homework and stuff lately that I haven't even worked on this for 2 weeks now. I'm ashamed.
