Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040405 Firefox/0.8
Build Identifier: Unavailable (consulting client using Mozilla FireFox 0.8 on Windows 98), also verified on Mozilla 1.6 and FireFox 0.8 on Linux

When trying to access port 87, a dialogue appears with the text "Access to the
port number given has been disabled for security reasons".  There does not
appear to be any documented way to override this and access legitimate services
actually provided on this port number.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a URL on port 87

Actual Results:  
A dialogue appears with the text "Access to the port number given has been
disabled for security reasons".

Expected Results:  
Provide a method for explicitly enabling access to specified ports if required.

Verified.  Port 87 is the ttylink port, and access to it is blocked to prevent
the browser from being used to attack things...
