"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You have to use /usr/sbin/no utility
"man no", no -a and no -L  for more information
Most likely following has to be added to /etc/rc.tcpip for permanent effect:

if [ -x /usr/sbin/no ]; then
  /usr/sbin/no -o tcp_ephemeral_low=1111
  /usr/sbin/no -o tcp_ephemeral_high=11111

adjust values to your environment. bad that AIX does not have instrumentation to reserve ports > 1024 for root or allow < 1024 for users.
