#1219 Listening mode via command line always runs on port 5500


When you start the program via "tvnviewer.exe -listen" it always opens port 5500, regardless of what the user has configured in the GUI before.

TightVNC should listen on the configured port if the user only specifies "-listen".
Additionally, it should be possible to specify "-listen <PortNumber>" on the command line to make TightVNC listen on the specified port

    Same problem as larsen255. I saw that this bug has long without owner. Nobody is going to solve it?

    Yes, there's a GUI option for the listening port, but how is this passed to the command line?

    But even with the default listen port, I'm getting error "Listening mode is not started" on Windows 10.
