Has anyone come up with a general way to change the port number in the http 
module? Right now it is hard coded to be 80, but it is very common to do HTTP 
over another port number.

I was thinking about extending the device name syntax for network devices
Does protocol,server:port conflict with anything? (http,server:1234)/foo
I separated the server from the port with a comma
Do you have implementation? Then send a patch for review.

It is more like prototype code and I need to clean it up.

                                                   because that is how
the protocol is separated from server.  I don't think either syntax
conflicts with anything else,
Actually ':' does conflict with IPv6.

                               but I haven't been working with enough
different parts of GRUB2 to really know.

In my previous note, I mentioned a command for setting the default
server, but I was really talking about the net_default_server env
variable. Thinking about it, an alternate default port doesn't make
sense because you really need to know its protocol as well.  Maybe a
default protocol or protocol/port env variable that includes both allows
the alternate port for the protocol to be specified?

Does not

set root=protocol,server,[?port]

do exactly that?

Yes, it can be done that way. But I was wondering if there needs to be an protocol/port variant of net_default_server. Or do I not understand the intended use of net_default_server?


and/or adding a 'default port' (with a command to set it) to go with
default server. I did an implementation that works for my needs but
don't think it is a good general purpose implementation.
Has anyone else done work here or have ideas for using alternate port numbers 
with HTTP?
