This is exactly why the AG community must agree on FIXED port numbers (can I suggest a port registry for venues/rooms?? e.g. NCSA Titan will also use these ports ... for video and audio). Which (along with the URLs of individual rooms) should not change when servers are rebooted, serviced, etc. This would make it possible to write simple batch files or apps that could pull up individual rooms with set preferences (unicast, multicast, etc) automatically with a click of a button. This would be extremely important for regular meetings with individual "lay" participants.

I think what you're hearing is unwillingness for anyone to commit to a wrong
>From memory, the ports for vic, rat, and the rest of the tools are allocated
by the venue server. It can be a static allocation configured by the
provider or a dynamic allocation (I think the default).
Given this configurability, it's impossible to state exactly what ports the
media tools will or won't use.
Sorry for the complicated answer.
