HTTP is port 80 - HTTPS is port 443.

LC does not do anything non-standard here (unless you specify, e.g.

Right, so - we know there are problems with LiveCode's networking stack 
communicating in some network environments. However, the problem is that 
we're not sure what configurations are actually causing the problem.

Trevor DeVore has done a lot of work over the years to help improve the 
internet settings auto-discovery, to make LiveCode much better in this 
regard; however, things still aren't perfect.

If we can find a way to fetch all the info about places which are not 
letting libURL work, then we can look into making it work... The problem 
is working out how to collect that information.

If anyone has any ideas on this score then that would be most helpful!
