Meshtastic port numbers

For any new apps that run on the device or via sister apps on phones/PCs they should pick and use a unique 'portnum' for their application.

If you are making a new app using meshtastic, please send in a pull request to add your 'portnum' to this master table. PortNums should be assigned in the following range:

PortnumUsage
0-63Core Meshtastic use, do not use for third party apps
64-127Registered 3rd party apps, send in a pull request that adds a new entry to portnums.proto to register your application
256-511Use one of these portnums for your private applications that you do not want to register publically

All other values are reserved.

Note: This was formerly a Type enum named typ with the same id #

We have changed to this 'portnum' based scheme for specifying app handlers for particular payloads. This change is backwards compatible by treating the legacy OPAQUE/CLEAR_TEXT values identically.

The current list of port numbers can be found listed in the protobufs
