The ip host command simply maps a name to an IP address so

ip host TEST 192.168.5.10

you can now either type

ping 192.168.5.10

or

ping TEST

and they should both work. Note that they are local to the router you are on. See this link for full details -

Hello,

the command reference is here

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipaddr/command/reference/iad_ip.html#wp1012102

the TCP port option is used on terminal server to map a name to the reverse telnet of an async line

see

Hope to help

Giuseppe
