The left side of the ship when facing forward, The original term was "larboard" . . . but the possibility of confusing shouted or indistinct orders to steer to larboard with steering to starboard at a crucial moment was both obvious and serious, The term was legally changed to 'port' in the British Navy in 1844, and in the American Navy in 1846, The word 'port' was taken from the fact that ships traditionally took on cargo over their left sides, i.e., the side of the vessel facing the port.

A software-based "hole" for data transmissions going to or from a computer. There are exactly 65,536 ports, numbered sequentially from 0 to 65,535. Ports can either be open (communication allowed) or closed (communication not allowed). Every Internet application uses a certain port or set of ports to communicate. FTP server software, for example, usually communicates on port 21. However, to allow it to operate through a NAT box, a user must "map" port 21 to the computer running FTP server software. That way, the NAT box knows to automatically forward all requests on port 21 to the specified computer, which allows the software to function as it normally should. Even in situations without a NAT box, ports can be opened or closed for security reasons. This is most often accomplished thru the use of a firewall.
