Difference between http and https
Feb 26, 2013, 12:31 PM
Can someone explain why is it that if an HTTP website is blocked by a filter, then why does changing it to HTTPS allow you to bypass the filter? What causes that to happen?

HTTP runs on port 80, HTTPS runs on port 443. if your filter is blocking port 80, then this explains it.
