      Ports required for Steam can not be re-mapped to HTTP or reconfigured to a custom port range.

  5. For generic Steam HTTP/HTTPS requests, your proxy should allow the following domains:

Most of the non-web traffic is usually UDP but can be TCP as well. For that, the IPs will all be from the Valve network (AS32590), and a list of those IP blocks can be found here:
