How to connect to a site that does not use the default port 80 for the HTTP connection

Resolution

To connect to a URL that is not using port 80, two things need to be considered:
  1. The URL port needs to be allowed between the proxy and the URL host on the firewall.
  2. If the traffic is blocked on the proxy, a policy item similar to the example below needs to be added to allow traffic to the URL domain or "urldomain.com" for port 1234.
<proxy> 
url.domain=urldomain.com http.method=GET url.port=1234 ALLOW
