Yes. If you want to access Admin Control Panel, you will have to type www.yourdomain.com:5678/forum.
Do you mean that now you would have JForum available through port 5678 apart of port 80?
Yes, only once the application is setup in the server.
That means modifying also the servlet container configuration right?

Our security group recommended to make a small modification (among others) in jForum, which forces admin users to use a specific port to access jForum Admin Panel. This port will be opened for intranet users only (not to the web), which will reduce the chance that hackers from web get into the admin pages. You can find related jira here: http://www.jforum.net/jira/browse/JF-445
