Manual page for SERVICES(5)

services - Internet services and aliases

DESCRIPTION

The services file contains an entry for each service available through the TCP/IP. Each entry consists of a line of the form:

service-name port/protocol aliases

service-name
This is the official Internet service name.
port/protocol
This field is composed of the port number and protocol through which the service is provided (for instance, 512/tcp).
aliases
This is a list of alternate names by which the service might be requested.

Fields can be separated by any number of spaces or TAB's. A `#' (pound-sign) indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.

Service names may contain any printable character other than a field delimiter, NEWLINE, or comment character.

FILES

/etc/services

BUGS

A name server should be used instead of a static file.
