Subject:  Re: foxweb listening on a specific prot
The procedure you outlined is correct.
FoxWeb does not handle direct TCP/IP requests from external clients. All requests must pass through IIS.

I understand it's not a programming question about foxweb but, YES it's related to Foxweb. It demonstrate the possibility for Foxweb to handle direct TCP transmission. 
1- in IIS (any version) Create New website (can be the same ip) 
2- After that, BIND the IP and PORT to this new website. ex: port 9999
3- Assing a default folder ex: c:\inetpub\port9999\
4- Assing a default Startup page like INDEX.FWX (script file)
Now, I remember the details. I done it before ... 
Thank you

The configuration is not related to FoxWeb at all. You need to set the IIS bindings for your web site in IIS, so that it listens for requests on the desired port in addition to, or instead of the current port. The process is different for different versions of IIS/Windows, but there are a lot of resources that explain how this is done. Just so a web search for "configure IIS (your version) to listen on different port".
You can either do it on the default web site, or create a new one. If you choose to create a new one, then you will also need to manually configure it for FoxWeb (the FoxWeb setup program configures the default web site automatically). The manual configuration steps can be found in

Yes, that's it.
Can you help me on how to forward non-standard port request to FoxWeb with IIS ?

Just to make sure I understand the problem, are you trying to have FoxWeb process an HTTP request sent by another device and that this request is using a non-standard port?  For this you will need to configure the IIS bindings, so that it listens for requests on this port and forwards them to FoxWeb.

I can't find the way to do that.
I have a device transmitting "DATA STRING" via TCP on a specific port.
ex: data is sent direct to 
Do you know how I can handle this with Foxweb ?

I'm receiving data on the server on a specific port number.

Can you remember me how to make foxweb listening this specific port ?
