    Question well-known ports supported by Symbian


    I'm presenting a talk to the Silicon Valley Symbian Programming SIG (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SVS_SIG/) about sockets and Active Objects. This is based on my investigation of porting the Netscape Portable Runtime (https://www.mozilla.org/projects/nspr/) to Symbian. Comparing POSIX with Symbian is central to understand this problem.

    RFC 2780 (http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers) provides a list of well-known ports and divides the possible port numbers into ranges. I am not suggesting Symbian adhering to this standard is the right thing to do. I would like to know the design decision made by Symbian on this issue. While I have read pretty extensively, I haven't found anyone detailing this topic. Can someone fill me in or steer me to a document on this topic?

    Thanks for your time and consideration.

    Hello Raghu,

    My notes are somewhat dated from 2006. PIPS and Open C make this job a lot easier.

    Mozilla is revamping their mobile effort. Here is a link to their plan.
