What is Port Number

A port number is a numerical identifier assigned to network connections on a computer. It acts as an endpoint for communication in the transmission of data between devices over a network, such as the internet or a local area network (LAN). Ports are organized into a hierarchical system, with well-known ports reserved for specific services, like HTTP (port 80) for web browsing and FTP (port 21) for file transfer.

By assigning different port numbers to different services, multiple network applications can run simultaneously on the same device without interfering with each other. Customizing the port number allows users to fine-tune their network configuration to suit their specific needs, enabling efficient and secure communication between devices and services.
