Note: according to IANA, port 14157 is unregistered.

From: http://www.webopedia.com/quick_ref/portnumbers.asp

In TCP/IP and UDP networks, a port is an endpoint to a logical connection and the way a client program specifies a specific server program on a computer in a network. Some ports have numbers that are preassigned to them by the IANA, and these are known as well-known ports (specified in RFC 1700). Port numbers range from 0 to 65536, but only ports numbers 0 to 1024 are reserved for privileged services and designated as well-known ports. This list of well-known port numbers specifies the port used by the server process as its contact port.



14157 is probably a custom port comming from an application. It is not detailed as a well known port for an application.
