What is the purpose of SSL port in build settings

Hi all,
Just wondering if someone can tell me the point of this setting?

I’m trying to setup a standalone Windows server with my SSL certificate. Working fine in Debug and I’m now just getting around to testing in build. I’m assuming I have to start the .exe with --secureport=XXXX

Ie, I would have thought that having 443 selected as a SSL port that I wouldn’t need to load the exe with a --secureport suffix and would work?

The problem is that port numbers below 1024 require root access to use by default, so setting that to 443 in the IDE will make it just fail to start up the secure socket server.

Thanks Gregg, so if I set SSL to say 1025 then I wouldn’t need to call --secureport on startup?

You shouldn’t no.
