Why has the port for Terraria Multiplayer changed to 7777?

31337 was a good port that didn't interfere with anything, but changing to port 7777 has made it so I can't play multiplayer with my friends anymore. They all have the right ports forwarded (as do I), and no-one can connect to each other. Port 7777 gets used by a few things (listed here), so why did the change happen?

The 31337 port is a infamously known for hackers to use to gain access to stuff on your PC

Thats why it was changed

Just look at the List of Trojans that use this port and you might have found your answer.

My friends and I are also having problems connecting to each other's servers since the port change.

In my case, my friend can connect to a server I am running just fine but I cannot connect to his despite him having the right port forwarded. Seems pretty erratic. I don't see why 7777 would innately cause problems as nothing critical is using it. It's not it's connecting on port 80 or 21.

Possibly because you didn't change your port settings to forward the new port.
