Technical description for port 992:

The port 992 is used by the Telnet (Telecommunications network) protocol. This protocol was one of the earliest standards approved by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). The protocol specifies the connections between the client and server. This is used in implementing networks like LAN (Local Access Network) and the Internet.
Normally, the information sent and received using the Telnet protocol uses the port 23. The port 992 is reserved for the secure information sent using this protocol. To ensure a secure connection, the protocols TLS (Transport Layer Security) and SSL (Socket Security Layer) are used. These protocols specify the encryption used on the information sent and received from the port 992.
The port 992 is used to receive information from servers. The same port is used to send requests to the client. The information is encrypted.
The Telnet protocol was developed before The Transmission Control and Internet Protocols (TCP/IP) were developed. It originally ran on the Network Control Program (NCP).
