In this chapter, you’ll configure your router to forward any incoming packet with a TCP port number from the web service to the computer hosting your web server. TCP port 80 is the default port number for the HTTP protocol; however, other port numbers can also be used. Another port number used often for the HTTP protocol is port 8080. This port number, sometimes called the HTTP alternate port, is used when the ISP does not allow incoming traffic for port 80.
