All communication goes through the 5000 port, AFAIK. I run my server
here on port 7100: netstat reports:

troll (6:53AM):147 > netstat -n
Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State      
tcp        0      0       ESTABLISHED 
tcp        0      0        ESTABLISHED 
tcp        0      0        ESTABLISHED 

Which shows two connections established to port 7100 on this machine,
one of which was done from the same box.
