Open port 9201 for mobile devices

Open port 9201 for mobile devices

Short, concise description of the idea
serve up lj to mobile devices over port 9201

Full description of the idea
Some of the mobile carriers out there offer browsing only over port 9201 on mobile devices. If LJ were to start serving over this port, it would allow many people to be able to read lj on a portable device without having to buy an expensive data plan (which is required on t-mobile, among others, to open port 80).

An ordered list of benefits
  • people could read lj on a mobile device without having to pay for an expensive data plan

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • port 80 is closed on most wap data plans on most mobile carriers. opening traffic on port 9201 would allow people to read lj from their wap browser.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • open port 9201 requests on the lj firewall and lj web servers. you wouldn't need to change the formatting since can be read just fine on most wap browsers.
