A/C Charging Port Seal (Leak)

When removing/replacing the radiator, we inadvertently loosened a nut on the block that holds the A/C recharging port (front of the car near the overflow bottle). Thought it was just holding that to a bracket, but it ended up splitting that block and refrigerant leaked out and seemed to continue doing so even when tightened up, leading me to believe it had some sort of seal there. Does anyone know if that has a gasket-type seal or needs some sort of sealant instead? I figure it will be ok to take apart now, considering the refrigerant probably leaked out. Would like to be able to fix that before taking it somewhere to be recharged.

Fitting is in the left front of the picture below.

Thanks for any assistance!
