Sockets in use

I would like to collect information on the use of socket numbers

for "standard" service programs. For example Loggers (telnet servers)

Listen on socket 1. What sockets at your host are Listened to by what

programs?

Recently Dick Watson suggested assigning socket 5 for use by a

mail-box protocol (RFC196). Does any one object ? Are there any

suggestions for a method of assigning sockets to standard programs?

Should a subset of the socket numbers be reserved for use by future

standard protocols?

Please phone or mail your answers and commtents to:
