Please forgive me the stupid question but I thought a port number is a 16 bit 
integer. How can one get more than 64k connections to one IP address then?

Or does this mean the machine has multiple addresses with a domain mapped to 
all of them?

Can you provide any more direct pointers to the papers you refer?
