Wen I do a nmap scan of my Red Hat ES server I get the following results:
(The 1592 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
Port       State       Service
22/tcp     open        ssh
25/tcp     open        smtp
80/tcp     open        http
110/tcp    open        pop-3
111/tcp    open        sunrpc
443/tcp    open        https
3306/tcp   open        mysql
6000/tcp   open        X11
32773/tcp  open        sometimes-rpc9
netstat -lnp gives this result:
tcp        0      0     *                   LISTEN
tcp        0      0     *                   LISTEN

First netstat command run as user; second netsat command run as root
I am trying to figure what is actually happening on port 32773 and if it could be a security risk.
I have used Bastille to "harden" the security on my server but am really stuck on unserstanding what:::
32773/tcp open sometimes-rpc9 actually means  in regard to a potential security problem for my server.

Thank you much in advance for any help you can provide in answer to this perplexing question.
