Hey If You Have Knowledge About Proxy And Port? Please Explain Me!??? I Am Clueless About Computer’s Stuff :(

Sorry, I know, I asked this kind of question yesterday. But I didn’t get the answer.
So, here’s the deal. (Please keep reading)
“Internet Explorer 6.0
1. On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options, click the Connections tab, and then click LAN Settings.
2. Under Proxy server, click to select the Use a proxy server for your LAN check box.
3. In the Address box, type the IP address of the proxy server.
4. In the Port box, type the port number that is used by the proxy server for client connections (by default, 8080).
5. You can click to select the Bypass proxy server for local addresses check box if you do not want the proxy server computer to be used when you connect to a computer on the local network (this may speed up performance).
6. Click OK to close the LAN Settings dialog box.
7. Click OK again to close the Internet Options dialog box.”
I followed the steps all above the list here. I got confused at the step #5. What is a PORT? Where/how do I get a PORT? I’m sorry, but I just don’t know what they are. I tries to figure out but still lost. Please explain me? 🙁 I need to know what’s PORT is so I can filled and follow all the 7 steps.
