Hi Scott,

Some info first

1) loncapa now runs 2 webservers
2) the aux. webserver runs on 8080 and serves up the remote control
3) there are areas in the login where we build the URL and I know we
don't look at the port number

For the first question, we have some small portions of the code make
assumptions about not needing to specify a port

For the second question, 8080 specifically won't work, and no not
