Hi, I was working on a mmo project a few months back, and I've been testing it out with a port with some problems. For some reason I couldn't connect to the internet for my game to access my server. I created a system where I can send a string text (done in java), and the server would respond confirming a connection to my game to the server.
I affirmed that the coding is fine with no errors, but maybe it's because I have been using a random port instead of one that could be used by more common online games.
Is there any suggested ports that I should use for my MMORPG? I need one that isn't firewalled and can connect accross the web using the string of text I'm sending through it.
Someone suggested I use port 80, but my concern is that hackers can access my files by using a browser with easy access to the data. Given that the database won't be part of the transmission, but logged seperately for security, I still don't think an HTTP port is the best option... I could be wrong.
