Apache has nothing to do with this. If it is running on 81,
the user needs to type in :81. How is the browser supposed
to know to send requests to port 81 otherwise?

The browser default is port 80 because port 80 is the
defined standard. Apache can't force a browser to change
a defined standard and use another port by default.
