For network security, it is frequently needed to know on which port a particular daemon or service is listening.


Most services or daemons that have their own PID (process identification) will simply show up in a 'netstat -nlptu' listing.  However, services which start with xinetd will show up as xinetd listening on the port.  As the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) manages these registered ports, identifying these services takes a little further investigation, but these are generally quickly identified by web searches.  For specifics on the netstat command-line flags, please refer to the man pages.

Here is a list of commonly-used TCP and UDP ports.  A similar list is generated by using the comand, 'netstat -planetu'.
