           Summary: /etc/services disregarded
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.6.1p2
          Platform: ix86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: sshd
        AssignedTo: openssh-bugs at mindrot.org

I use RedHat 7.2 and the SSL version which ships with this.
SSHD seams to have an annoying feature/bug which does not honour 
/etc/services. There is a program which periodically starts up on the server 
and when running, listens on a port registered in /etc/servives. However, 
when one ssh to the server, I have now witnessed sshd 'stealing' this port 
and the application fails to start up as the port is already bound. Is there 
a way of telling sshd to honour the reserved ports (man page seems not to 
give any such clues). If not, I would say it would be a welcomed enhancement 
if it could do this.
