    What happens if you change the default ports in FMS 14?

      My company has a Windows 2012 R2 server that serves many roles. It hosts our website, a few of our customer's websites, handles FTP, remote desktop and of course FMS. I know this is taboo but we are very close to getting them all to play nice together.

       

      I would like to separate my server's roles a bit better. Here's a screenshot of my situation:

      Right now our websites are in the FMWebSite directory and, because FMWebSite uses port 80, Default Web Site is Stopped. I'd like FMS to use a different port so that I can use the Default Web Site configuration on port 80.

       

      However, I'm afraid if I change FMS to use a different port that things will get ugly. For example, if I use port 81, will I have to enter XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:81 in FMP's Open Remote dialog to access my files? Will I now be using a port that some other program needed? Or will everything work as smoothly as it does on port 80?

       

      Bonus points:

      Do I need to change port 443 as well? Will using port 444 break anything?
