PLEASE implement variable ports instead of using 8332 and 8333!!!
\
I only have one system and cannot afford another, yet I would like to run an instance of the old client with data from old block chain (with generating disabled) to analyze the data in comparison with the data in the new block chain.  This is not possible, however, as I have only one computer, and my attempts to compile from source and modify the ports has failed as I do not know how to do this.  It would be VERY much appreciated if I weren't to have to go through this trouble and could simply specify to the client to use a different port and then I could provide the information to myself and others for analyzation.   But, alas I cannot.  Boooooo!!! =/

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Isn't the external port just for receiving inbound connections?
You should still be able to use outbound connections.
Or does it complain about not being able to bind to the port when you start?

Unable to bind to port 8333 on this computer.  Bitcoin is probably already running.

Use Gavin's -port and -rpcport patch.

I still have difficulties compiling from source.  I look forward to that being intregrated into the binary client soon.  Thanks.

What platform are you on? I have builds for Linux on my site (out of date atm, but I can get a new release up soon).

If you're on Windows, then I guess you're out of luck with me.
