I think you misunderstand him. Port 631 is:
$ grep 631 /etc/services
ipp             631/tcp                         # Internet Printing Protocol
ipp             631/udp

And it's used by cups. I think he is trying to run the P2P program
Localhost from http://p2p.cs.mu.oz.au/software/Localhost/ is that
I haven't tried to to run it but the test page on there site also give a error.
