It's not a random address.  It's the default port number to use when you say 
something like:
  server nts
You can specify a port number with:
  server nts

"pre-arrangement" and "existing channel" are interesting terms.  You don't 
specify the port number when you use ssh or http to talk to a box.  (At least 
most of the time.)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
