I am looking to migrate to new HW hosting our WSS sites and is load balanced. all looks well with testing and although we are using a load balancing appliance and works well, i have aconcern about the new port (81) that we are using and links specifying the port #. i would like to hide the port # when mousing over active links and docs posted on our sites. is there a way to hide this? our current envirnment is running on port 80 and after migration our environment will be using port 81 and should be undetected by all users.

The HTTP specification designates port 80 as the default HTTP standard port. Each client browser implements this as its default port when it makes a request to a web server. This would need to be a switch on the client to change the default. You will not be able to hide this. A user could run a netstat and see what ports are being used also.
