I would like to know how I can restrict the possible range of ports that Server for NIS (nissvc.dll) uses. Every time it starts up it starts under a different port in a range somewhere around 550-1000 or so. I believe clients find out what port it is on by querying the SunRPC server on port 111 first to find out where it is and then query it for NIS services. Since I have deployed host-based firewalls, it would be great if I could control what port nssvc comes up on so I could configure a firewall rule for it. Further, it would be great if I could find out what other IDMU services might use dynamic ports through SunRPC so I could also set up rules for them. Anyone have any references for me?
Thanks in advance.

It looks like the following article mentions the ports used by services for UNIX.
