after going through a few articles, i understood that the number of sockets a port can have depends on the OS.. but, i still wonder what that number is??
For win , linux ??

Do you mean client sockets simultaneously accessing a server port? That could be a lot, but it doesn't depend on the OS. If you mean server sockets, then there can be at most 2 per port, one for TCP and one for UDP. That too is independent of the OS.
