webster is an old dictionary program.  We actually run websterd severs
at my workplace.

However, that's not likely what you're running (in fact, I'd be
surprised if it would compile on a modern system without some work).
Try running the following command to find out precisely what's listening
on that port:

netstat -npl | egrep '\:765[[:space:]]'
