    Theoretically you could use any port but many will be blocked by firewalls. Can you give us a few more details about the program? Is this a school project or a commercial type of project?

    The program will work online if it works within the local network. The only thing you have to do is, if you have a router, forward the port your program is using. This is very different for every router, so you will probably have to look in the manual.
