ORPort is the port on which Tor listens for new OR connections (this is
the Tor data plane).

ControlPort is the port on which Tor listens for new controller
connections (e.g. connections from TorCP).

I believe that the socket accepting OR connections binds to by
default, in which case it MUST NOT have the same value as ControlPort.
Also, the ControlPort specified in torrc MUST match what TorCP thinks
that it is.
