IP ports hard-wired or not?

Hi, am I right in assuming that the ports that vaults and launchers use is completely arbitrary, or is there a hard-wired expectation of certain port ranges?

Yes. Above 1500 and less than 2^16 - randomly chosen. Seed nodes for instance are fixed on reboots, port forwarded nodes may also choose to do that. For normal click and go folk then it’s random.


I meant, the choice of ports in their config files is completely arbitrary, as long as they’re consistent?

yes :slight_smile: But keeping above 1500 and less than 2^16 means you do not need root access.


Yes, we’ve been in that range. Just wanted to make sure.
