I/O Port Referece

Where can I find a I/O Port Referece for the PC?
Is there a list somewhere?
Maybe someone knows, when the memory map for the PC was created and by who.

All PCs in general.
The ports are standardized, are they?

What's your goal?

In reply to: PC

Do you want to know what ports are common on a modern computer, or do you want to know what ports have been officially approved by a standards issuing body, such as IEEE.

If you want to know what the ports on your particular PC are, then tell us the computer manufacturer name and model number.

I just read your post more carefully.

The last time I played around with I/O ports on that level was in college (a long time ago). I am by no means an expert on it.

Google.com will come up with I/O port reference manuals and I/O port programming links.

How ports work
Each port has a number, which is like an address. Many programs and services have a "permanent address"?that is, they have predefined port numbers. You can find the correct port number for a program or service in the manufacturer's documentation or on their Web site. For more information, see How to Open Ports in Windows Firewall on the Microsoft Web site (http://www.microsoft.com/).
Some programs (some games, for example) do not have predefined port numbers. These programs open ports automatically as needed. For a program like this to connect to your computer, Windows Firewall must allow the program to open the correct port. For these programs to work correctly, they must be listed on the Exceptions tab in Windows Firewall.
When you add or change settings for a service or program, such as a game, you must choose whether to open the port to any computer or only to computers on your network. If you choose Any computer, anyone from the Internet or your network can connect to your computer. If you choose My network only, only computers on your local network can connect. If you prefer, you can click Custom, and then type a custom list of IP addresses and subnets that should be allowed access.
Always Update your OS in Microsoft Update Sservice..
