Best Way to Implement Web Interface - Replace WPD or co-install?

Sun Feb 18, 2018 11:30 pm

For my project, I am trying to figure out the best way to implement a user-friendly web interface, similar to the Windows Device Portal, but tailored to an end user of my IOT product, not it's creator like WDP.
Since the WDP already runs on a web server, would it best to just replace the Portal itself with my own(perhaps hiding the actual portal behind a technician password wall)? Or does this violate some EULA with Microsoft/ is not possible as most of WDP is baked so far into Windows and you'd need to work there to replace it?
If it is the latter, would it be at all damaging to run a second server instance on port 21 hosting my interface, leaving 8080 to the WDP, or would this be likely to overload the OS?
I'd appreciate any help in this, thank you!
