       services - Defines the sockets and protocols used for Internet services


       The  /etc/services  file	 associates Internet service names and aliases
       with the port number and protocol used by the service. Each service  is
       listed in this file on a single line of the form:

       ServiceName  PortNumber/ProtocolName  Aliases

       The  fields  contain  the  following information: The official Internet
       service name.  The socket port number used  for	the  service  and  the
       transport  protocol used for the service.  A list of unofficial service

       Items on a line are separated by spaces or tabs.	 Comments begin with a
       # (number sign) and continue to the end of the line.

       Entries in the /etc/services file for the inetd internal services might
       look like this:

       echo	     7/tcp echo		 7/udp discard	      9/tcp	  sink
       null  discard	    9/udp	sink  null daytime	13/tcp daytime
