Connecting without a port

Is it possible? I have a remote user trying to get in who can't connect. They've shown me the connection screen and it says "if no port is given the default will be used" or words to that effect.

 

But I have a domain, I don't need a port. How does this work?

If you’re using a domain, the port should be 80 when connecting via HTTP (unencrypted traffic) and 443 for HTTPS.

 

This is an over simplification, but based on the fact that you’ve tried letting Emby use the default port, I will assume you’re typically connecting to your domain without entering a port in your browser.

 

Side note: if you do not have an SSL certificate and aren’t using HTTPS, I highly recommend you set that up

Domains and ports are totally unrelated.

 

If no port is specified, then the IANA port for HTTP is TCP 80 and HTTPS is TCP 443 - but emby (by default) uses neither of those.

 

HTTP uses 8096

HTTPS uses 8920

 

So when addressing the URL in a client, you must specify the correct port.

 

For example - http:\\myembyserver.com:8096

 

Your emby dashboard will show you exactly what connection URL is required for HTTP and HTTPS.

The issue is for those of us who use a reverse proxy and subdomains. We don’t want ports being used.

 

if my url is https://emby.mydomain.tld it’s going to translate to my local_IP:8920 - this obviously creates a problem because you wouldn’t want https://emby.mydomain.tld:8920

All of our apps should allow you to leave the port field blank when entering the server address.

I asked because a user was unable to sign in using just the domain. There is no port field on the Apple TV.
