This is general question on unix software development. I actually have seen some of the earlier questions (mentioned below) which gave rise to my question:
- How to let kernel choose a port number in the range (1024,5000) in TCP socket programming
- How do I reserve ports for my application?
- Is there a way to occupy a port permanently
Suppose if you are building a service which you later want to package and publish for the linux distro and it involves networking, if you are making everything my scratch ( like not using ssh or http etc ), then you will need some default ports for communication. So how does the community ( or whoever is responsible ) decides which port to be used and make it reserved?
How the whole stuff for deciding a new reserve port works out?
