The term "port" is probably being overloaded here. (Meaning it has more than one meaning).

There are standard port numbers in /etc/services and I'm sure they are set to the defaults. People don't change those.

I'm guessing he app wants ports to be opened in the firewall so traffic can go back and forth. Do you have a firewall setup on the system?

I imagine some ports need forwarding at the firewall so it can get out.
