When sender sends first GTP-C message to destination, destination port is 2123. but the source port allocated locally at sender end. Messages over GTP are categorized as following:
1. Initiating message.
2. Triggered message.
3. Trigger reply message.

First message sends by sender known as initial message. And there is always a response message of initial message(triggered message). when both the protocols (GTPv2 and (GTP'v2 or GTP prime v2)) are running on same node then implementation make sure that both the protocols shall use different source ports for initiating messages, So when IP layer receives a trigger message(response message), it could forward reply message to right protocol entity based on the chosen source port.

Hope I have answered to your query properly.
If you still have any related query then feel free to ask.

How does MME and SGW maps the GTPv2 messages responses to each user or IMSI not all of these responses carry IMSI values or any other user identifier, for example Create Session Request has Mandatory IMSI field, but the answer don't have IMSI, so how does MME know this particular response belong to this particular request?
