Destination Port Number defines the port of the network host to which the DS will attempt to establish an outgoing connection. When the DS will attempt to establish a connection to the destination host is defined by the Connection Mode (CM) setting . Destination IP-address the DS will attempt to connect to is defined by the current Destination IP-address (DI) [setting / parameter / instruction ] .

Destination Port Number is irrelevant when the current Routing Mode (RM) [setting /parameter ] is 0 (server) since in this mode outgoing connections are not allowed.
