Windows IE Port Limit?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I have been trying to host from my computer to be able to access and I had the DNS redirect to pot 8888 since my ISP blocks 80 and 8080. But it wouldn't work for PC's. It did work when I changed the port to 2222. Is there a max port number?

    IP port numbers go from 0 to 65535, regardless of the system, and are divided into three ranges.

    The "well known" ports are those from 0 through 1023.

    The registered ports are those from 1024 through 49151.

    The dynamic and/or private ports are those from 49152 through 65535.

    Here is a reference of them:

    Thanks brad, so any ideas as to why it wouldn't have worked?

    And while I have your vast knowledge around, what makes an https connection secure? I want to have things sent through a filtering system so I figured I would have to encrypt it so that the filter system doesn't recognize it, but if I just make it https would that work?
