The server port is already "known" because it is tied to the "daemon_name" variable which is passed at the xxfi_connect() call.

In Sendmail, this comes from the DAEMON_OPTIONS() M4 configuration directive.  The field "name=" is what is passed, and as that is tied to a field "port=", and all ports must be uniquely 1-to-1 mapped to names, passing the name implies the unique value of port.

Pseudocode - NOT perl:

switch($daemon_name) {
  case "MSA":  Port=587; break;
  case "MTA":  Port=25;  break;
  case "MTS":  Port=465; break;

If you can't do something like that to obtain the value you want from the value you're given, ....
