Question socket address

Could anyone tell me please:

-what the socket number of a network computer is?

-How it is related to the IP address?

-And how can I obtain this information from my work station?

A socket is the combination of an IP adress and a port number. E.g when you browse some homepage you make a TCP connection to a destination socket say "192.168.1.1, 80". But in order to get data from the webserver you (the client) must also have a socket, a source socket, say "192.168.21, 3032".

Networking is not a simple subject so I suggest you go buy a book or start reading some network tutorials if you want to know more.

hope this helps
