    When using w3m terminal browser, how can I specify the http/s port that I want to use when connecting to a web server.

    There does not seem to be a -p option to use non-standard ports (80 & 443). The colon syntax, localhost:8080 does not work either.

    Anyone know how to do this? Seems like I have been able to specify the port in addition to the host on w3m before.

    You need to use a full URL, e.g., w3m http://localhost:8080/ works.
