  1. A port number represents an endpoint or "channel" for network communications. Port numbers allow different applications on the same computer to utilize network resources without interfering with each other.
Port numbers most commonly appear in network programming, particularly socket programming. Sometimes, though, port numbers are made visible to the casual user. For example, some Web sites a person visits on the Internet use a URL like the following:
http://www.mairie-metz.fr:8080/ In this example, the number 8080 refers to the port number used by the Web browser to connect to the Web server. Normally, a Web site uses port number 80 and this number need not be included with the URL (although it can be). In IP networking, port numbers can theoretically range from 0 to 65535. Most popular network applications, though, use port numbers at the low end of the range (such as 80 for HTTP). The port number is included as a field within the header of each IP packet. Note: The term port also refers to several other aspects of network technology. A port can refer to a physical connection point for peripheral devices such as serial, parallel, and USB ports. The term port also refers to certain Ethernet connection points, such as those on a hub, switch, or router.

2.The protocol number is used to identify the machine and a port number to identify particular applications running on that machine and To allow applications to communicate with each other, either on the same machine (using loopback) or across different hosts, each application must be individually addressable

What software should I use to bypass my university internet restrictions?


If the games are in fact, "yours" then you can configure your game server to publish on the normal HTTP port (80). Then, you will have no trouble at all.

I hope this is helpful,

Getting a message about shadowing my session


The program you are using is telling the terminal to accept a VNC request, as it will send date on the port open for VNC. So the terminal is asking you to accept the prompt to allow a remote machine to control your session.

You can set the program to ignore the VNC ports, so it wont get prompted. Failing that you should be able to change the terminals behavior to the requests by editing the wnos.ini to not allow VNC connections. I think that can be done from there. Check on the config generator for wyse terminals on technicalhelp.de to find the correct syntax.

Trying to get internet radio on my wireless sound system.


Start your PC; press START - RUN and in the box, type CMD and then press enter. A Window will open. Type here IPCONFIG /ALL and then press enter. You will see then some numbers including DNS Servers and Default Gateway (usually they are one and the same if you are using a router) PROXY set to NO. Should work then. Failing this, navigate using your web browser to http://www.kitz.co.uk/isp/dns.htm where you will find a list of all DNS servers - scroll down to BT and choose some from that list.

Howto add a network printer on Wyse winterm S30 terminal?


The S30 terminal has the CE 5.0 operating system loaded as default. So you are limited by the operating system and not the hardware when it comes to network printing.

Here is a extract of the release notes for Windows CE 5.0:

"In Windows CE, TCP/IP supports network printing through the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. It does not provide the Windows Line Printer Remote (LPR) Spooler. However, independent software vendors (ISVs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can add this support."

In short, you need a 3rd party software program or a (SMB) printer server setup to setup network printing on the S30 terminal..

Wyse also have add-on software to help, if you have CE 5.0 loaded then try the "Thinprint" add-on supplied as a free download by them.
Download Link:
http://www.wyse.com/supportdownload/3series/Addon_ThinPrint_B0010.exe

I haven't tried this, so let me know if it works.

Remote access to lacie ethernet hard drive


you will need to open a port on the router first. Maybe 8080 once you get that set you will type the WAN ip and the port number. It will look like this: http://165.123.123.0 : 8080
it will then ask for a username and password.
