Does this ".com:888" choke spiders?

Have an associate whose site uses urls like this:

http://domain.com:888/file.htm

Anyone know if this causes any spidering problems?

Thanks - Craig

Sorry to bump this up, but I really need to know the answer to this one. Can anyone help?

Thanks - Craig

Yes, that will be a problem if the site doesn't respond to "http://domain.com". The port number has to be returned to the spider. Most se's will not spider a site that doesn't initially respond to a request on port 80. Most will strip the port number for the intial query. It will also not store the port number between queries. Using alternative port numbers, used to be one of the real tricks of seo (it's just like multilevel domains).

Thanks Brett! I thought it would be something like that, but needed confirmation.
