Posted 10 March 2012 - 08:42 PM
Can anyone confirm that port 80 is all that is used?

| According to portforward.com Netflix uses 80 and 443 http://portforward.com/cports.htm|
80 = streaming
443 = authentication
Makes sense...well sort of. Seems a bit odd to use 80 for the actual stream, but I guess they do that so as to avoid a bunch of tech support head aches thanks to people with different routers and settings(and understanding of configuring).
The very simple QoS I set up for the house is working as expected. No more complaints from the wife accusing me of stealing all the bandwidth.

You have to remember when they first started doing streaming it was on a Roku box and the browser.

|No they did it to make it simple and easy. 80 is better known for http.|
Isn't that kind of what I was saying? One of my past titles was Internet Infrastructure Specialist - I'm pretty hip to port 80
