in the address? Is it port number?
How many such usefull numbers are there for system admin?

Hello,

Port 631 is assigned to IPP (printing protocol) and commonly used by CUPS on Linux systems to provide access to the web configuration page for the Common Unix Printing System.

To find out about other ports, have a look at the official list here.

Kind regards,

Eric
