Question
how can email and web servers exist at the same time on a network through the use of port number?

Answer
Hi Sohaib,

This sounds to me like a homework question.   I'll be happy to help you but please first provide your answer and I'll help guide you along afterwards.  Hint ...think of the OSI model and what layer is IP and what layer are ports .... So ... What are the function of each.

Thanks.
