I've installed teamcity on two machines now. The first, I tried reinstalling multiple times because the web interface would launch in Chrome and fail with:

This site can’t be reached The webpage at http://localhost:6666/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

ERR_UNSAFE_PORT

The teamcity-server service was running, but not accessible on the port I'd set up. Eventually I tried curl localhost:6666, and got a response, so tried again in Edge browser. In Edge, everything works fine.

On the second machine, same deal. Installed fine, not found in Chrome, works fine in Edge.

Is this a known issue with TeamCity? Is there some kind of setting in Chrome that may need changing? How should I go about diagnosing and fixing the problem?

You will need to explicitly allow that port. From the guide here:

You can modify the shortcut to Chrome so that it explicitly allows that port when chrome launches: "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --explicitly-allowed-ports=6666"

The problem is that port 6666 is considered unsafe by Chrome (hence the ERR_UNSAFE_PORT error), as it clashes with one used by Alternate IRC [Apple addition].

I looked into this and found a list of ports to avoid, so as to avoid having to modify the Chrome shortcut as recommended by @Wesley Rolnick.
