It basically merges the old /etc/services with almost all current
official IANA services.
I've tried to make sure the file is sane and in order, but due to the
huge amount of new services i'd like to give it some selected exposure
and feedback before i think about putting it into our setup package.
The file can be downloaded from here:
Just dump it as a replacement in /etc (maybe making a copy of the old
/etc/services first, but shouldn't be necessary as the first part of
the file is identical to our old one).
I'd especially like to get some feedback from people using it on
network servers or monitoring machines where apps like nmap, tcpdump
and ethereral are run. My main interest is if any errors pop up and if
anyone gets performance problems (because for worst case scenarios it
can now take up to 15 times as long for getservbyname() to complete).
Thanks in advance,
Read ya, Phil
I'd really suggest instead making a poll of what people would find useful.
There are going to be a lot of things in there that will probably never
be useful, e.g. 2545 "sis-emt" is one I registered, and I'm pretty sure
is now unused, or certainly of only very limited use.
Just a thought.
