To find your IP address, try this

Quote:

* Click the Start button, select Run
* Type CMD and press Enter.
* A Command prompt window will open. Type ipconfig and press Enter.
* Several lines of information will be displayed. The IP address looks like "149.72.61.234" - yours will probably have different numbers near the end.


Your computer has about 50,000 ports, numbered from 1 to 49,999. The second part of your question doesn't make sense.

Are you setting up a server on your computer? In that case asking for the port would make sense (since it would be the port that other computers would use to connect to your server).

The port number is set by the server software. Port 80 is the default for a web server. If I remember, Apache defaults to 8080. You can set this to whatever you want when you configure your server software (although some values would clash with set port numbers and would break things elsewhere).

If you explain what you are doing, it will be easier for us to be helpful.

65,365 for TCP and 65,365 for UDP.

To find what port a program is using:

Run a DOS prompt, then run "netstat -ano". This will list all of the IP addresses and ports that are being utilized. You can then use the process ID (PID) to determine what program is using the port.
