Domino Server Networking Part 4 of 7

Per the notes.ini entry:  <TCPPort>_TCPIPAddress=0,IPaddress:port.

I'm not clear on how or if  TCPPort relates to the TCP/IP protocol's definition of a port.  In my TCP/IP book it states: "The interface between TCP and a local process is a "port", which enables the process to call TCP and in turn enables TCP to deliver data streams to the appropriate process ... Ports are identified by a port number"

1)  What is the relationship between TCPPort and what my book on TCP/IP defines as a port?

This is confusing because the word PORT is used two times:
1) for NotesNetworkPort names
2) for TCP/IP port numbers

To take it simple see it like this: Notes uses by default TCP/IP port number 1352.
You are allowed (but you do not have to) to name the address and port combination as a NotesNetworkPort.

Even worser; as you ask in later parts, this notes.ini line is not necessary. If this line is not present, than the server listen to all 1352 ports he can localy bind to.

So the answer for your abowe question is:
1) The relationship between TCPPort and what your book on TCP/IP defines as a port is: TCPPort is the NAME for a TCPIPaddress:TCPIPport combination.
