Port doesn't fit inside a short #25760

Short's are signed 16-bit integers whereas ports are specified as unsigned 16-bit integers. Might appear in other places but noticed this issue when trying to resolve SRV records with port numbers larger than 32767. Suggestion: read and write as Int.

Thanks @glenn-johansson

Checked with the spec.
TTL is an Int and is signed so that's okay.
Length is also unsigned so needs fixed
Weight and priority also unsigned 16bit so they'll also need fixed

We can't read/write them as an Int as they are 16bits but we can store them as an Int and do the conversion.
