Details

If this property is set to 0 then the socket will use "automatic" port numbers: for the first connection since the powerup the port number will be selected randomly, for all subsequent outgoing connections the port number will increase by one. Actual local port of a connection can be queried through the sock.localport read-only property.

If this property is not at zero then the port it specifies will be used for all outgoing connections from this socket.
