The easiest way to figure this out is to install lsof.  You can get it from either www.blastwave.org or www.sunfreeware.com.  

If you're on Solaris 10, pfiles finally the ability to show clearly what network ports a specific application has open.  The issue is you need to run pfiles against every PID on the system to figure out which app has a port open.

Yeh, with previous versions of solaris, the cleanest way short of developing a script, is to use:
lsof -i:portnumber

so to check for PIDs associated with ssh (assuming you're running it on the default port):
lsof -i:22
