Default Can I have ISPConfig running another port than 81?

I have run ISPConfig for about a year now - simply love it! But I have a problem... Many places (worst of all - at work!) I can not access my ISPConfig, because it runs on port 81, which seems to be blocked. There's nothing blocking on my side - I can access from quite a few locations worldwide.

Would it help to run ISPConfig on a different port? Like port 12345? Is it possible without massive hacking of ISPConfig? Will it help?

Best thing would be if ISPConfig could be run on port 80, just as the rest of the webpages. Accessed from admin.myispconfig.com.


edit: Please forgive me, I posted in the wrong forum! I am so sorry...

You can use the port 443 (standart https) but, none web site can use this port. Only one by ip address

1. Delete Listen 443 on /etc/apache2/ports.conf
2. Change port 81 on /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
3. Restart ispconfig

Sorry for my english

Most times proxy ports like 8080, 8443 are accessible as well. You could try them as well, in case you need the port 443 for another purpose.

I did two things, I NATed port 8443 to 81, so i can access ISPCOnfig's apache directly.
The other things is I created a web, gave him a trusted CA certificate and proxied /ispconfig to the local one...
