Well-Known TCP Port Numbers

In TCP/IP and UDP networks, a port is an endpoint to a logical connection and the way a client program specifies a specific server program on a computer in a network. Some ports have numbers that are preassigned to them by the IANA, and these are known as well-known ports (specified in RFC 1700). Port numbers range from 0 to 65536, but only ports numbers 0 to 1024 are reserved for privileged services and designated as well-known ports. This list of well-known port numbers specifies the port used by the server process as its contact port. Port Number 1 5 7 18 20 21 22 23 25 29 37 42 43 49 53 69 70 79 Remote Job Entry (RJE) ECHO Message Send Protocol (MSP) FTP -- Data FTP -- Control SSH Remote Login Protocol Telnet Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) MSG ICP Time Host Name Server (Nameserv) WhoIs Login Host Protocol (Login) Domain Name System (DNS) Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) Gopher Services Finger Description TCP Port Service Multiplexer (TCPMUX)
