Restrictions on mobile servers?

On the desktop, most OSes at least provide some means of requiring 
explicit admin permission to allow an app to open a TCP port for listening.

What restrictions are imposed by iOS and Android for similar security?

In the Android settings for LC's Standalone Builder, does the "Internet" 
permission cover both client and server roles?

That seems a bit broad to me, but in my brief searching this morning I 
haven't yet turned up how each mobile OS restricts apps from allowing 
connections from the open Internet.

Any guidance on this would be appreciate.
