  1. A port number or address is a way to identify a specific process to which an Internet or other network message is to be forwarded when it arrives at a server. For the Transmission Control Protocol and the User Datagram Protocol, a port number is a 16-bit integer that is put in the header appended to a message unit.
    Each application can run only on a socket which is unique i.e. not used by other application.

  2. Port numbers are used to identify the socket to which the segment is delivered on end host. Each port number is a 16-bit number, ranging from 0 to 65535. Port number ranging from 0-1023 are well-know port numbers and are restricted, which means that they are reserved for use by well known application protocols

  3. A port number is a way to identify a specific process to which an Internet or other network message is to be forwarded when it arrives at a server. For the Transmission Control Protocol and the User Datagram Protocol, a port number is a 16-bit integer that is put in the header appended to a message unit. This port number is passed logically between client and server transport layers and physically between the transport layer and the Internet Protocol layer and forwarded on.

  4. Port address- a port is an endpoint of communication in an operating system. While the term is also used for hardware devices, in software it is a logical construct that identifies a specific process or a type of network service.
    A port is always associated with an IP address of a host and the protocol type of the communication, and thus completes the destination or origination address of a communication session. A port is identified for each address and protocol by a 16-bit number, commonly known as the port number.

  6. PORT ADDRESS: PORT IS AN END-POINT OF COMMUNICATION PHYSICAL AS WELL-AS WIRELESS CONNECTION.

    PORT ADDRESS: PORT ARE IDENTIFY FOR EACH PROTOCOL AND ADDRESS COMBINATION BY 16-BIT NUMBER IS CALLED PORT ADDRESS.
