Can not connect to any device that is not using port 80 with Google Chrome

Error Message

When connecting to a device that is no longer using port 80 on Google Chrome, you receive the following error message:




Right Click on the Google Chrome shortcut you use to launch your browser, then select 'Properties'.

Next add the following additional text to the 'target' box. --explicitly-allowed-ports=xxx


"C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --explicitly-allowed-ports=554

To allow access to multiple ports separate the ports listed using a comma, as shown here:  ports=554,110,116



***Please note***

You will need to add port 554 to the list above if you wish to receive video from the device's web interface using RTSP. Alternatively log in to the device and change the RTSP video port to match the HTTP port of the device.

Also note that you can not specify port ranges for Google Chrome to use. You will need to add each port entry individually.
