Which port is used by SSTP?

What is SSTP port?

You can read my previous articles about the SSTP port.

The goal is to find a simple and transparent solution to help you get free access to this service.

How SSTP Port works? The solution that I have made for myself is to enable the browser as an extension and it uses a local proxy to bypass network restrictions. This solution has a big limitation in that: Can not use it for a long period of time. The browser extension has to be enabled every time you start your device.

It doesn't work with some types of apps. For example, the Google Chrome does not work with it because of the sandbox restriction.

Can not use it to bypass app restrictions. It can't bypass the app restrictions because it does not have root access.

Why you need to use SSTP port? I have a Samsung Galaxy J3. This device comes with two versions of Android: 7.0 and 6. I cannot use SSTP port to change the 6.0 to 7.0 without rooting. However, SSTP port works perfectly with the 7.0 version of Android.

In other words, SSTP port works only with Android 7.0 (Nougat). It does not work with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).

The Android 7.0 Nougat was released in April 2024. Since that, Google has improved a lot of security settings for Android devices. Some of them are:

Permission to access the Camera. Permission to access the Location services. Permission to access the Internet connections. Some of the settings that I have mentioned above are the most common settings that people may use every day. For example, it is very common that people are sharing their photos with others via social media. It is also very common that people are sharing their location information via Google Maps.

If these two settings are shared with any app, the app can send you unwanted notifications or can access your private information without your permission. How to use SSTP port? You can get it for free by installing the browser extension. It is available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Microsoft Edge. It is compatible with all the major operating systems including Android, Windows, Mac, Linux and so on.
