Asking netbase maintainer(s)? Just read /etc/services about that.
Hmm. Reading your and dato answers, it seems I wrote wrongly my mail.
The question (still in subject) was how to have admin-chosen
ports for some services. The first proposal was to dynamically change
port in inetd configuration.
I proposed to move the dynamic port in the "/etc/services" level, not
necessary modifying such file, but in a way accessible to getservbyname(3).
But now I'm not sure about:
- if it is a good thing to have admin choosed ports
- if /etc/services level is the right thing to do.
