Randomized Client and Server Port Numbers

Just as there are options for Static and Automatic port number control in Parsec, there should be a tertiary "Random" option as well. 

Having Parsec randomly choose ports can have several benefits, including (somewhat of an) anonymity to ISPs, resistance to automated network firewalls and blocked packet rules, and resistance to censorship and/or blocked services and/or throttling.

    This is the default. When you choose ports on the network settings tab, you're overriding randomized ports.

  • So the Automatic rule goes by the same settings as Randomization?
