[p2p-hackers] NATs reconfiguring IPs and Port Numbers

It seems port numbers change after a certain amount of time due to the local NAT or local ISP, and the peer to peer application has to re-configure itself to find out what its new global address is...and broadcast that to others so they can re-connect; does anyone know what the average time is a port number is good for? I'm getting up to 24 hours testing through Comcast and SBC; but i have to sleep so...i'm not sure on this number.
   
  thanks
