MSMQ via HTTP - Why do we need TCP Port 1801? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Context: MSMQ, Windows Server 2008 (either "regular" or "R2" editions)

    According to MS online documentation here:


    MSMQ messages can be transferred over HTTP.

    However, the ports needed for such transport technique, are:

    • 80
    • 1801

    Now, port 80 (or the host's default HTTP port, which is 80 for most cases) is trivial and understandable.

    But TCP port 1801? Why? Isn't it pure HTTP?

    Thanks in advance.
