How to disable sometimes-rpc or port 32776 , 32779 , etc


I've found this sometimes-rpc after doing nmap scanning

Starting Nmap 4.20 ( ) at 2010-05-19 15:33 GMT+7
Interesting ports on
Not shown: 1692 closed ports
22/tcp    open  ssh
80/tcp    open  http
32776/tcp open  sometimes-rpc15
32778/tcp open  sometimes-rpc19
32779/tcp open  sometimes-rpc21
how to disable those ports? I listed the services using
svcs -a | grep rpc

#svcs -a | grep rpc
disabled       Oct_26   svc:/network/rpc/keyserv:default
disabled       Oct_26   svc:/network/rpc/nisplus:default

offline        14:38:45 svc:/network/rpc/smserver:default
offline        14:38:45 svc:/network/rpc/rusers:default
All the rpcs were already disabled or offline. So what are currently using those ports actually?
I also using lsof :
#lsof | grep 3277
to find out the application using the ports, but it returned nothing.

Please help.

I'm using SPARC Solaris 10.
