Bypass Port Protection
Many browsers don't accept uncommon ports for HTTP (HTTPS).
For example, when we attempt to access http://example.com:22, browsers present that it cannot be accessed.
To release such a restricted thing, we can edit the setting in browsers.
- Enter "about:config" in search bar.
- Input "network.security.ports.banned.override" in the form.
- Add the desired port (e.g. “22”) to string.
