logically and physically you can try, but most ports are listening for
very specific input. If you try to connect to port 80, seviced by apache

An open port means that some program at that end is listening to the
packets with that port address on them. That is what "open" means. What
it does with those packets is up to that program.
It tells you which ports have something listening to them.
