Ports used by Trojans
Understanding a Port?In the TCP/IP protocol stack, messages associated with the common application protocols that most of us are familiar with — such as HTTP for the Web; SMTP, POP, and IMAP for e-mail; Telnet and SSH for remote logon; and FTP for file transfers — operate over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or User Datagram Protocol (UDP); TCP and UDP messages, in turn, are carried inside Internet Protocol (IP) packets. The primary difference between TCP and UDP is that TCP is connection-oriented and UDP is connectionless. When using TCP, then, two hosts must first establish a logical connection before they can exchange data (analogous to establishing a telephone connection) while hosts using UDP do not require a logical connection before the exchange of information (analogous to sending a letter through the postal service).
Both TCP and UDP employ port numbers to identify the higher layer applications at the hosts that are communicating with each other. End-to-end data communications on the Internet, in fact, are uniquely identified by the source and destination host IP addresses and the source and destination TCP/UDP port numbers.
TCP/IP applications generally employ a client/server model, exemplified by the relationship between your Web client software (i.e., the browser) and a Web server; the user "points" their browser at the Web server which is usually listening on port 80. Port numbers can take on a value between 1 and 65535, with server applications generally being assigned a value below 1024.
