Discussion on: Hosting a Node.js application on Windows with IIS as reverse proxy

If you use IIS as a reverse proxy you should not see the port of the nodejs application in your URL. IIS forwards the request to the nodejs application without the user noticing. Port 443 is the default port for https connections, I would not use it as the port for the nodejs application. I recommend changing the port to a port that is not commonly used, somewhere in the 3000 range for example.
