There are various ports on the computer itself: ports to plug in your mouse, keyboard, USB devices, printer, monitor, etc. The kind of ports that are more relevant to information security however are virtual ports found in TCP/IP. Ports are like channels on your computer. Normal web or HTTP traffic flows on port 80. POP3 email flows on port 110.
