Pacer Forum doesn't exist any more. It is reasonably likely there is
not a single copy of Pacer Forum running anywhere in the world. I don't
think Forum was ever ported to OS 8. Development was stopped by Pacer
even before a series of corporate acquisitions, each of which made Forum
less relevant to the acquiring company. The eventual acquirer ended up
dropping all of the remaining Pacer products (which I don't think
included Forum any more) about two-three years ago.
So, as a practical matter, the port has been abandoned and is available
for use. I don't know what the procedure is for IANA to remove an
assigned port number from their list.
