Port 8000 TCP

iRDMI - Intel Remote Desktop Management Interface

iRDMI, or an alternative port for HTTP TCP/80

According to the official RFC/Specification for network port allocations port TCP/8000 is allocated to Intel.com for use by their iRDMI (Intel Remote Desktop Management Interface) protocol, however in reality this protocol is not very wildly used in modern day networks.


Instead, the most common use for TCP/8000 is an alternative port number for HTTPs or HTTP. Typically you may find people using this port when another service is already bound to port 80, such as a web server, or people are trying to use an alternative port as a crude security mechanisim.

This was interfering with my GatsbyJS development server... a quick port change in /etc/services and all is fine. FYI: The "Intel Remote Desktop Management Interface" is a defunct hardware service from the late 90's that listens on 8000... this may also explain why it's present on my old - but still kicking - Thinkpad x220 dev-box.
