There's nothing mandating the use of any specific port, of course.
But if you want to run the webserver (intended for access by people
using their web browser) on, say, port 8443 you'll need to set up
another port for SOAP requests ("back channel"), in case you need to
support those. And do the mental mapping yourself, since the
documentation assumes 443 as standard HTTPS port and uses 8443 for the
SOAP requests (using client authentication based on trust fabric
certificates; something completely different).
