Default which port on master cylinder goes to the rear brakes?

I have C5 brakes and LS1 rear brakes on my 71 firebird. I also have a LS1 master cylinder, currently i have the port on the master cylinder closest to the firewall going to the rear brakes nad the port closest to the radiator going to the front, but recently I was informed this coudl be incorrect. Is this true? is the rear port for the front brakes? Also the brakes feel pretty good, I have hydroboost also. Could this cause a problem? obviously i will just redo the lines if it is wrong. Thanks!!

I just did some searches and it seems most people put their line locs in the rear port, meaning the rear port is for the front brakes, meaning mine is backwards, I am wondering though, if the master cylinder really cares front/rear? If it puts out the exact same pressure front and rear?

Disregard my Post Man. I told you erroneous info . I got confused and edited it and it came up wrong. i am now deleting that stuff.
Youare correct the rear port (the one closest to the firewall) is for the front brakes.
