I've been trying to learn Git in the past two/three weeks.

What port does Git run on by default? Is there a specific port to unlock on a home router to get outside commits working if the router is protected by a firewall?

Git supports:

  • SSH
  • HTTP/S
  • Git protocol
  • Local protocol

Depending on your needs you have to use one of these protocols. Have a look at the section "The Protocols" in the book Pro Git for a detailed explanation about these protocols.
