SSL workings

Can some please highlight exactly how SSL works. I know it encrypts data sent between a client and a server and uses 
authentications through use of certificates etc.

But does it secure the a socket/port out of which the data is being transffered. Does SSL send data through a different 
port that normal unprotected data transfers?

Sorry if this sounds kind of beginner like :-s
