why does monome host on port 8000?

  • yeah that's right I know nothing about computers. But I was just wondering what the other 7,999 other ports are doing. And is there a special reason why it listens on port 8080? Why not 8001?

  • i'm not sure there's a particular reason when you get that high up, but the internet, for instance, resides mostly on port 80. things like AIM and https:// are on different ports.
