What port does System i Navigator connect to

Greetings iSeries Gurus,

I just successfully set up SSL for an iSeries Access 5250 Emulation connection...
I need to know what port is used by the System i Navigator when it connects to the iSeries...

I know that Telnet uses port 23, FTP uses port 21, and SSL uses port 992 for their connections...
(Curious to note that port 992 is not showing as open on the iSeries...)

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Complicated question.  navigator has two diffferent clients: web version and "fat" client (installed as part of IBM i Access for Windows.

Default ports for the web version of Navigator:


Windows version of Navigator uses different ports for different functions:


Here's the general port list for various IBM i services:


Additional ports specifically for Operations Console:


Post back if I can help you zero in on something specific.
