"winipcfg" is the correct spelling, but yes- that will give you all of your IP configuration info.

In terms of your question about the port #, you would have to clarify that by giving us more specific information. Network applications and/or services all use different ports, but that info isn't anything you usually have to configure or worry about.

The port you connect to will depend on the protocol you are using to communicate and what service you expect to have listening for a connection on the machine you're connecting to. The official list of port assignments can be found here:
