Changing The Port Wizard101 Uses

Is there a way to specify which port Wizard101 uses? Or to provide the functionality for Wizard101 to detect and use an open port?

Thanks!

As far as I can tell, there is no way to configure the application itself to use a specific port. Right now you are stuck with the KB response:

The ports to allow: tcp 12000 for login, tcp 12500 for patch, tcp/udp 12000-12999 for game


I'm guessing you are trying to bypass a firewall? If so, have you looked into setting up a SSH tunnel and SOCKS proxy? I do this to run the game when I'm behind firewalls that I do not manage. I can provide more details on how to set this up if you need.
