the MPI port-name in Open MPI has nothing to do with a TCP port number.
The port-name right now is a combination of the process name ( a tuple
of cell id, job id and process id) and a tag used for the communication.

Maybe somebody from the RTE group could comment on whether there is a
possibility to specify a specific port number for OOB communication, I
am not aware of any right now...
