Not off the top of my head. The most convienent way I've found to
determine is lsof (apt-get install lsof-2.2 or lsof-2.0.36 depending on
Just do a "lsof | grep TCP" as root and you'll get a list with names
pids, and open ports down the right. It's nice.
Someone else suggested it was rpc, but if you are actually
neo.rademaker.dhs.org (That's what your headers say), that's not it.
