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.


  1. Enter "about:config" in search bar.
  2. Input "network.security.ports.banned.override" in the form.
  3. Add the desired port (e.g. “22”) to string.
