Creating and connecting to a web server

Bogdan Stashchuck demonstrates how to create and launch a local webserver that connects with a TCP port.

In this video, you’ll examine how to create and launch a local webserver on Docker and then connect to a specific TCP port.

You will learn more about:

  • updating your local webserver’s default port
  • determining if a port is safe to use
  • recognising which IP version is compatible for a connection
  • distinguishing between client sockets and server sockets created on the same operating system.

Please refer to the ‘See also’ section for a link to Docker so you can follow along with the demonstration.
