Server connection port is 8444 by default. It can be changed by adjusting Console config.
Server certificate fingerprint is unique to each server and is used to authenticate Server once Agent attempts to connect.

Advanced settings include two options:
History ttl: in milliseconds by default, value 7776000000 is 90 days. This is how long old job runs are kept in Console's database. The longer they are there, the bigger database grows.
Identify agent by name: by default agent takes its name after computer name, at the same time it has a random ID generated after installation and first launch. This setting means that even if agent is reinstalled on computer, it won't connect to MC as new agent.
