Re: port 8054

Hi john,

Fom iana.org 8054 is in the range for HTTP Alternate - from:

http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

quote:

# 8034-8079 Unassigned
http-alt 8080/tcp HTTP Alternate (see port 80)
http-alt 8080/udp HTTP Alternate (see port 80)

So if 8054 is being used foe DNS - it's *not* standard

HTH,
Jeff

Re: port 8054

I should have said - it's unassigned, so there's no way to tell you whether it's UDP or TCP *because* it's NOT standard. But IF I had to bet, when it comes to the importance of DNS - I'd say TCP for sure.

My $0.02,
