Re: Services assigned to Applications, commands, etc, etc,,

Are you looking for what's being used now, or
what's possible?

> is it? ---> netstat -a ???

That should show what's in use now.

"/etc/services" lists names for many popular
services (ports).

Hi Manuales:

By "assigned" perhaps you mean:

Shalom,

/etc/services is a reservation file that will give you an idea what most services you see listening with netstat -an will be configured to listen on.

Notable exception: Oracle, which does not put entries in /etc/services

netstat would show what service is using what port at that moment.

/etc/services is the files to reserve the ports.

If some ports are hardcoded in application then they would use it and it may not be specify in services.
