It's not really clear what you're asking here. Could you clarify a bit?

Obviously browsing your network using explorer would display most host names and you could then ping the server to find it's ip address (presuming name resolution is working OK).

As for the port, which port do you mean?

Open MS-DOS window
C:\>ipconfig /all

You will see your IP address, system name, and just about anything else you need to know.

Not sure what you mean by "port" - too ambiguous.
I'm sure Col Jack O'neal  of SG1 (aka McGyver) would not leave out these deteails...

Type:

ping -a nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn

where nnn etc. is the IP address of the server. The "-a" in ping asks that the name of the pinged device be returned.
