Title: Getting a website's socket settings...
Post by: andrewmoquin on August 13, 2009, 03:49:11 am
How can I get a website's socket settings? For example, when someone says that such-and-such website's settings are port 39, host "website.com", etc., how did they get that info? 

Thanks!

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but there are certainly a couple of things you can do to find that information.
First, you can use nslookup or a web based reverse dns lookup service to find out information about the domain.

Websites most of the time run on port 80, unless otherwise configured, in which case your URL will look like "http://www.my.site.com:1234" in this case your port is "1234". But if you dont see that in the URL, then most likely it's running on port 80.
