A port is a software address on a computer on the network--for instance, the News server is a piece of software that is normally addressed through port 119, the POP server through port 110, the SMTP server through port 25, and so on.
A socket is a communication path to a port. When you want your program to communicate over the network, you have given it a way of addressing the port and this is done by creating a socket and attaching it to the port.
Basically, socket = IP + ports Sockets provide access to the port+ip
socket is nothing but a communicational end point.while port is like an address for a computer on networks
A socket is not a port, though there is a close relationship between them. A socket is associated with a port, though this is a many-to-one relationship. Each port can have a single passive socket, awaiting incoming connections, and multiple active sockets, each corresponding to an open connection on the port. Port identifies a service no. e.g.25 port no is for smtp
difference between coupling and socket
A serial port is a side socket in which electrical current can be connected. A bus is a electrical device allowing connection and the transfer of information.
A socket is where the cpu plugs into. The socket holds the cpu and allows it to work in the motherboard to do calculations and management for the operating system. A port is an irq opening within the motherboard to allow certain devices that need a communication pathway to properly work. Example old serial port mouse needed a communication port to work properly with the motherboard and operating system.
Based on the definitions at the associated links, a bus is an electronic connection which allows the transfer of information, whereas a port is a socket in the side of a computer which allows a matching plug to connect to that computer.
well i don't think the question given is a correct question because like give the difference between the keyboard port and the usb port
what is the difference between plug ang socket?
Terminal provides infrastructure for the port to handle containers.
They are the same. Different name for the same port.
give the difference between serial port and parallel port
A PGA socket is a pin grid array and a SPGA is a staggered pin grid array.
It's cool and easier!
There is no difference the are actually just synonyms.
Travel chargers tend to be smaller, and often plug into a different outlet, such as the cigarette lighter socket in a car or the USB port of a laptop. Regular chargers are often more stable, and may include a port for the item to be charged to rest in or on.
The most distinguishable difference is that LGA775 is not technically a socket. In LGA775 systems, the motherboard is the one with the pins; the CPU is flat. Socket 478, like other PGA sockets, has the holes, while the pins are on the processor.
A PGA socket has pins aligned in uniform rows around the socket. Where an SPGA socket has pins staggered over the socket to squeeze more pins into a small space.
It is 120V
The telephone line is the medium. The port is the connection point.
A ring circuit goes to every socket and at the last socket it returns to the consumer unit. A radial circuit stops at the final socket.
A butt weld is a weld made between two straight cut profiles , a socket , or plug weld is made between a surface and a hole.
Secure Socket Layer is used by HTTPS which communicates over TCP port 443
On most computers and now games machines there is a PORT (Socket) for headphones and Microphone. In most the Mc socket (Port) is red and the speakers/headphones are blue or green.
