Yes. With socket.bind().

No, you need to call bind in the client prior to using the socket for

Normally you don't call bind on the client side because you want the
default of any address and any port, but if you want a specific address
(or specific port) then you have to call it.

(This is why you always see it called on the server side too, since you
want a specific port there.)

You can pass 0 for the port number if you want it to be automatically
chosen as usual; it's rare (and generally not recommended, although
needed in a few cases) for the client to request a specific port number.
