Port Numbers

Port numbers can be appended to the end of IP/host addresses when they are preceded by a semicolon (;), for example,;1364. This convention is specific to IBM® Connect:Direct® for Microsoft Windows and is not an industry standard.

A port number must be in the range of 0 through 65535. Port numbers lower than 1024 are designated as reserved and should not be used. The following examples show port numbers appended to IP/host addresses using these conventions:;1364
