Weather Message Byte Blaster Server now on port 2211

On January 30, 2010, I blogged about port number 2211 being assigned to EMWIN.  See EMWIN Port 2211 for more information.  Today I moved the Weather Message Byte Blaster server to port 2211.  There are now a number of servers using this as the standard Byte Blaster port.

I updated the Byte Blaster Server to default to port 2211 for new installs.  If you run a Byte Blaster server, you should be able to safely move it to port 2211.

The NWS servers will continue to use port 1000.  This will allow users behind firewalls with port 1000 open to continue to operate properly.

Users that had to open port 1000 should consider opening port 2211 also.

WeatherMessage.net domain

After alot of discussion, we have purchased the WeatherMessage.net domain.  This domain will work just like the wxmesg.com domain.  Over the years, many people have asked what WxMesg.com means.  In order to reduce confusion, we decided to use a domain name that simply identifies the company and our product.

The new domain, although longer, will be easier for potential customers to understand and type.  We will start migrating to the new domain over the coming months.  The original WxMesg.com domain will remain in place.
