    Could someone please direct me to an article explaining ports; what they are, why they are open, what communications use what ports, why there would be more then one port open, etc, etc.
    It needs to be easy to understand! :)

    Thanks,
    Douglas

    Excellent, Pieter! :)
    Great links in those pages, too.
    But I wouldn't say they were exactly easy. I feel like that guy in the article who said that he thought he was the only one in class who didn't have the knowledge. :)
    Time to learn!

    Thank you very much,
    Douglas
