Chicken, if you are going to ask a technical question you should try to give as much information as possible.
Are you saying all YOU have is an IP address and port? This doesn't make any sense.
How about you know an IP address and a port and want to connect to it? This makes a little more sense so i'll take a stab at it.
First ports in the tcp/ip world are used by services to "listen" for incoming connections (amoung other things). By default a web server will listen on port 80 for http:// connections. 80 is a "well known port" that is a port that everyone, Netscape, Microsoft, the RFCs (Request for comments) has agreed to use for http traffic. For a complete list of well known ports load up an NT system and look in c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\services.
So, how do you connect? Well you can't just "browse" with IE or Netscape (or whatever) to that port. A browser established an http session and the service listening on that port may not be http. The best starting point is to use a telnet client and connect to that port. If you are lucky and security isn't too tight you will receive some data. For an example try connecting to mail.hotmail.com port:25 with telnet. So what can you do with this connection? Depends how much you know. I recommend reading the RFCs (boring but filled with a lot of good junk).

I'm sorry Joe I'm trying to connect to FTP sites but I got it figured out for the most part. Thanks though.

I'm not sure if I should post another topic on this? Is anyone using Bulletproof FTP? If so I need to ask a few questions. I can't remember my ICQ but If someone responds with theres we can talk tonight. Thanks
I don't use bulletproof but features should be similar what question do u have?
If I copy a IP to enter, it automatically starts to connect. Is there a way around this?
