I feel entitled to know whether my free upgrade to Server 3 is still likely.
Yes, upgrades from version 2.x to 3.x will be free for registered users.
Radmin Server 3.0 will also support Chat and Voice Chat features presented in Radmin CS, but keep in mind that Radmin CS will offer richer commuication capabilities than Radmin Server 3.0, since Radmin CS is a specialized product.
I also strongly recommend to set the port to the orld 4889 for the retail version of RA 3.
It was done intentionally.
If Radmin Communication Server (RComSrv.exe) would use the same port as Radmin Server (r_server.exe), RComSrv.exe would kill running r_server.exe at startup, as RComSrv.exe would try to use a port which is already in use ("bind_socket fails" error would occur).
With different ports, you can use both products on the same computer.

You don't need to change them, you rather should add new port.
I was wondering if a web interface is in the works for radmin
No. There's no web interface for Radmin, since it would be great security hole. Releasing web-based user interface would force endless attacks to your Radmin Server from the Web and, most importantly, web traffic encryption is much poorer than internal Radmin encryption, so passwords can be stolen.
That's why you must download Radmin from our site and install it on your computers in order to use Remote Administrator. Anyway, we are constantly thinking about solution, so it may be developed later.
