The port number that I needed to know is 3128. I discovered this by
doing a port scan on the host on which I had installed adzapper. I
entered that number into the port field in iceweasel advanced
preferences and adzapping started working. Who said Debian isn't user
friendly? ;-)

3128 is a fine, well formed, number. I have no need to change it so the
other part of the question is moot.
