Thread: /etc/services question- SUSE 11.

  1. #1

    Default /etc/services question- SUSE 11.

    I have a port in /etc/services (1521) that I want to change the description of.

    port 1521 is defined for ncube-lm but it's being used by lsnrctl for Oracle.
    I changed the description in /etc/services and rebooted the server.
    If I run wireshark and monitor on that port it comes up as TCP 10983 > ncube-lm [FIN, ACK].
    How do I get the /etc/services change to be updated ?

    openSUSE 11.x is no longer maintained or supported - are you perhaps
    using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (or Desktop)? If so, you want the
    forums at http://forums.suse.com - same login and password that you used
    here.

    Otherwise, just be aware that you may not get a lot of help, as 12.2 is
    the earliest version of openSUSE still in support (and that'll be going
    away soon as 13.1 is now out).

    That said - your update to /etc/services should have remained - do you
    still see the edit in the file?

    You might check the Wireshark documentation to see where it gets its
    service names from - it may not use /etc/services (though it looks like
    it's supposed to).

    Yes, it's Enterprise. I posted a thread in the proper forum.
    The /etc/services file reads the proper string, but wireshark (which I think uses the same library as tcpdump) still shows the old string of ncube-lm.
    Thank you.

    If you are using NIS or LDAP naming services, then the services map may come from there.
