Technical description for port 5190:

The usage of the network port 5190 is registered for use by various Instant Messaging (IM) clients like AOL and ICQ. The port is utilized for the support of various technologies associated with these clients catering to the creation of real time communication among users. This technology is normally text based and uses the Internet or similar networking environments.
This technology carries its data through the communication port 5190. It differs from similar technologies like electronic mailing via its perceived synchronicity. The communication among users happens in real time with the feature of allowing messages to be sent to users that are not currently online. These messages are delivered and accessed by the user upon logging into the network.
Other features that may be supported by the system port 5190 include group chat, file transfer and conferencing services. Recently, video and audio streaming has been added.
Streaming of video and audio data is normally carried on a separate port of the machine to avoid colliding with other data.
