    I am not sure what this is nor why i did not notice it before, but using lsof i was able to determine that lshttpd has this TCP port open for localhost. What is this for?

    That should be the administration port used for communication between the web admin interface and the server process.

    Could you add an entry to /etc/services when installing with root? That way people can see what this port is for in netstat.

    For security reason, LSWS uses a random port between 7000-8000 for that purpose. Each time lshttpd starts, the port will be different.
