    Hi,

    In ABR Mode of v14.3, why does it need to remove HTTP and HTTPS ports from the service?

    I'm trying to find a reason for that in the documents but no explanation. What if we need to use a custom ports like 8080 or 8443?

    In ABR mode, protection of ports in pure bridge mode is currently not supported. only TRP rules are supported. To avoid confusion, the GW enforces the deletion of these ports from configuration.

    Thank you very much for the response.

    We enabled the TRP and for now it is working fine. But what if we need to use a custom ports like 8080 or 8443? Example, to access oliver.com I will use oliver.com:8080. Do we need to add these ports?

    Yes, you will need to add a TRP rule for these ports.

    Ahh.. for clarification. We don't need to add the ports under the Definition Tab?


    But we must specify the custom ports under Reverse Proxy Tab?



    Is my understanding correct?

    That is correct. You can add the ports to the existing TRP rule.
