At Fri, 26 May 2000 it looks like Chris Waters composed:
CW-> Well, I just checked, and gnome-session is definitely not hardwired to
CW-> 1480. On my laptop, for example, it's using 1025/tcp. I suspect that
CW-> it chooses a free port at random, or something.
Hmmm, so excuse my "chicken-n-egg" thinking, but _if_ a service does
randomly choose 1480, the portscan only checks for life, references
who's the last registered owner of that port and not who's
actually breathing behind the port ?
