This will copy the file to your Current working directory, dot at the end indicates Present working directory.

Code:
scp username@ipaddress_of_server:/path/to/file/in/server .

scp is part of ssh, so it uses port 22. You'd have to change the server cfg sshd_config on the server and restart it to listen on a different port. Not sure why you'd want to do that though ..
