Subj:   Re: Connecting to the Teradata and Port 1025
From:   Victor Sokovin


  There can be multiple connections to the same port. The port of the server (the hotel) can accept multiple connections depending upon the maximum connections it can handle. In case of ODBC, I believe it depends on the number of PEs and each PEs can handle 120 connections.  

  The port on the client, i.e., your PC, will only use one port at a time, that it randomly picks. So, first time you connect, your port would be, say, 1043, but the server port would be 1025, in case of ODBC (23 in case of telnet). When you connect again, you will have an additional port on your client, say, 1044, but the server port would remain the same.  

  So, the analogy of hotel/chair is not correct.  

Not that I introduced the analogy but my adding the "chair part" to it might have made it more precise. The high number of chairs per table suggests something like the dining hall at Hogwarts rather than a mere hotel, though, so I agree that one might think of a better analogy.
