Not sure how to unpack this statement from the Channel Overview MIDI Ports, MIDI Channels, Transposition and Key Ranges section of the VE 7 manual. My question is in red next to the area I need to understand. 

Using the latest version of VE7 Pro as well as VI Pro 2 and Cubase 10.5.

Each Vienna Ensemble Pro instance offers up to 48 MIDI ports [How do I access these ports in Cubase 10.5 PRo, where VE Pro is instantiated as a rack instrument plugin?]  with 16 MIDI channels each (= 768 MIDI channels) and a virtually unlimited number of audio ports. You can set the number of ports in the Server Preferences of each instance. [This I was able to do] 

The channel selector also allows you to choose omni to receive on all 16 channels (for multi-timbral instruments such as Kontakt, Omnisphere or Stylus), or none to temporarily disable MIDI input on that port. If you’re running Vienna Ensemble Pro as a plug-in, a dedicated Plug-in MIDI In port will be offered for every Instrument. [Not sure how these are 'offered' in my DAW-Cubase 10.5 PRO-so far I'm limited to 16 midi channels per instance, some snapshots of my setup are included  ]  Used as a VST 3/AAX/MAS plugin, up to 48 ports are available within Cubase, Nuendo, Pro Tools, Sonar and Digital Performer.

They're there in the Inspector, click to assign to the instrument and the number of ports you have enabled is revealed.

I have 16. Then you set the channel, below this in the next dialog for the track.

I don't know of any reason to use "any/all" as an assignment with VSL. I use it with Kontakt sometimes with a multi and in the Key Editor assign channels to notes, so the track itself is omni and the multi as well. VI Pro et al are not multitimbral instruments like that.
