Hi all! I have a working chatwoot installation (docker version). my frontend URL ist For this it will be used by default port 443 Now I would like to use another port instead of 443 for exampe: I change the ENV "FRONTEND_URL" from to As an Agent I can now reach the agent interface via I can open the chat widget and write a text. which will be send to my agent interface. But if I send a message as an agent, this text will not be reach the chat widget. the browser developer console will always show this error: Firefox cannot connect to the server at wss://chatwoot.mydomain.d:1234/cable. Is there a solution for this problem?

We don't support having ports in the frontend url at the moment. you might have to tweak the source code if its a hard requirement
