Hello all,

Our proxy is configured on the default port 8080, and we use transparent
proxy for Net access. We are trying to access a site on the Net that is
using port 8080, but we get a "The page cannot be displayed" message
when trying to access the site, the usual response for a port blocked
thru packet filters.

What are the implications of (a) opening port 8080 or, if this is not a
good idea, (b) reconfiguring the proxy to use another port?
