What was the source (the port the client was using) port? High end ports are
used for dynamic connections on most OSes. For example, I connect to
www.google.com. My port (my outgoing port) might be 45,003 connecting to
www.google.com's port 80. Now there are two endpoints. My port, in this
example 45,003, and google's web server operating on port 80....
Does that help?
