IF the port you are specifying is in the range 0-99 then you *must* use the
:: syntax. The : syntax works for all other port numbers. This is because
: is used to specify a *display* number (0-99), which maps to ports
5900-5999, and only treats values as *port* numbers if they are outside the
valid display number range. :: is only ever used to specificy port numbers.
