http://serverfault.com – I would like to make my dev sites have port numbers. I thought I would just start at a certain number and increment by 1 every new site. The question is what number should I start with? I have know there are reserved ports at various numbers. Are there a range of numbers that can be assumed safe to use? (HowTos)
