to be honest, i do not really understand what you want.
1. currently there is no possibility to change the port# dynamically.
i do not really know why (well, of course, it might leave a 
non-functioning patch, when trying to assign a port# already in use)

2. you can use [netreceive $1]
however, this is not very dynamically

3. you can generate a patch with a fixed port#.
i've attached an example that i often use
