I’ve been starting to delve into the world of Windows Azure this week.
After getting the Azure Samples loaded, I tried running one of them (just by hitting F5 in VS) and, as Firefox is my default browser, got a “Port Restricted For Security Reasons” error.
Of course, it worked fine in IE
Here is what to do –
It turns out, that my application was trying to use port 87 on 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1:87)
Load up Firefox. Type about:config in the address bar, and hit enter. You will get something like the following:
Right click, and click New -> String.
Set the preference name to: network.security.ports.banned.override
Next, set the value to: 87 (or whatever port your app is using)
