"SSL can be configured to work on any port above 1024"...
is it true ? can't SSL be configured using a port below 1024 ?

SSL can be configured to work on any port. All ports under 1024 are reserved for particular uses, these do not have to be observed, though it is good practice. For example, 443 is reserved for HTTPS though you could use it for FTP if you really wanted to.
The only other thing that makes ports under 1024 unique is that by default on Unix based systems you must have root access to bind to them.

Is this true. I am thinking SSL can only be configured on port 443 as thats what is used by HTTPS which is HTTP over SSL.


Thanks
