Free TCP/IP port numbers?
We are going to install a range of software on a Debian Linux installation.
Because we run the same software (such as Celery) several times, we need to
use port numbers different than the standard Debian port numbers chosen by
default (because we can't run more than one instance of a server with the
same port, and thus using the standard port number for all servers would
How to choose TCP/IP port numbers for server software we run in such a way
that they don't clash with "standard" Debian port numbers?
In Debian are there any ranges of port numbers dedicated (so that they
wouldn't clash with "standard" that is used by default port numbers) for
servers configured by users?
Note that we run (at least some of) our software not as root, so we can't
use ports below 1024.
