What does netstat say? Use -t and -u to show both udp and tcp, -l to filter 
for listening ports, -p to get the pids of the processes and eventually -e 
for a more detailed output (so, for short `netstat -tulpe' - btw. thanks 
to whoever posted this acronym to the list. Speaking german this is pretty 
easy to remember(Tulpe = tulip(the flower) :).

If you are lucky, that should reveal the process listening to that port..
