Hello John,

If you connect to a server, then the server accept the connection into a
local port which is different from the listening port. This is how
winsock works, because the Listening port stay listening.

this cannot be different because if the same port should be used for
data transfer then it cannot listen anymore because ip+port has to be

The listening port on the server is the port where the client connects
to, the local port on the server is the port where the connection is on
once it is accepted.

Rgds, Wilfried
