TCP port 708 open - how to find out by which program?


Running nmap on my Slackware 10.2 shows that my TCP port 708 is listening.

netstat --all shows the same:
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State
tcp        0      0 *:708                   *:*                     LISTEN
Is there any way to find out which program is listening on this port? Google tells me it should be un-used and I have no custom /etc/rc.d/-scripts that could explain this port being open for listening. It's not open by the firewall, so it's not a big deal, but I'd still like to know who's listening, and for what...

Use netstat with the "p" option. It gives you what is the program.
