Right click mycomputer/properties will give you most info about your computer or control panel, system icon .not sure what port # you are refering to. Ip address .type winipconfg in start/run i think will work ,I haven't used win98 for a couple of yrs now .

"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.
hi everyone, What i am doing is writing a simple socket program using c++ to connect to another pc. The socket properties requires a port number and computer name to connect to that particular pc. Thus this what i am trying to find out is how to get the other pc's port number and computer name
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:
