Remove default circulex port
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Having a default port risks easing traffic analysis and disruption for an adversary. Given that the main intended use is peer-to-peer anyway, and we need to work around NATs that might assign unpredictable public ports, there's little value in using a specific default port.

More server-like instances with stable addresses could use a dnsaddr to publish stable IP addresses and ports for its peers to connect to, if the stability of the addresses and ports isn't sufficient in itself to make up for the lack of an assigned port for circulex.
