I think you are misunderstanding the notion of "port". This is not a
TCP/IP network port but an actual kernel device file (e.g. /dev/mouse,
/dev/psm0) referring to the hardware port on the machine that your mouse
is connected to.

Hope that helps. :)

The good Mulla was observed sitting in a tree in his yard
and sawing the branch he was sitting on. A neighbor asked
what he was doing.  Nasruddin replied: "I'm cutting down the
tree; except for this branch: I like the shade it casts."
