QUESTION:

Let's pretend that there are only 5 ports available on a computer
and
that I have 5 computer that want to chat with each other. My one
server
is one port 1 and my other 4 PCS are on ports 2 , 3, 4, 5
respectfully.
So since the only available ports on the PCs are NOT the same
amongts
the group, then does that mean they can't all talk to each other????

I would assujme the asnwer would be correct.

So, then HOW does RealPlayer and others allow you to change the port
number to connect to. Does that mean THEIR server listens on ALL
ports???
