Subject Re: CouchDB with SSL support.
Date Mon, 19 Jul 2010 19:14:51 GMT
In theory binding to the same port on another interface is possible. But I would prefer to
have a dedicated "default" port for SSL, so you have an indicator if the connection is HTTPS
or HTTP.

6984 sounds okay, but I don't know how to register this.
