webAdmin cannot listen on port 80 or 443

I can't set webAdmin to listen on port 80 or 443.
Tested for ipv4 and ipv6

[ERROR] [config:admin:listener:IP-TEST] Can not set address to webAdmin!
Nothing is listening on port 80

It's a bug or a feature?

CentOS Stream release 8
OpenLiteSpeed 1.6.18 (installed from LiteSpeed Repo)

OpenliteSpeed Web Admin port will not accept 80/443 even you have a different network. If changing the firewall is impossible, then you might want to consider to set up a reverse proxy for the web admin which sounds weird to me through :ROFLMAO:
