/etc/hosts gives the ip and the hoatname list. Likewise how can I find the list of ports and the assigned name for them?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I meant netstat -a gives me

*.pa_arrs            *.*                0      0 49152      0 LISTEN
      *.pa_neid            *.*                0      0 49152      0 LISTEN
      *.pa_rcm1            *.*                0      0 49152      0 LISTEN
      *.54977              *.*                0      0 49152      0 LISTEN
      *.54979              *.*                0      0 49152      0 LISTEN
      *.pa_rcm2            *.*                0      0 49152      0 LISTEN

So i would like to find what is pa_arrs and so on. I know netstat -na gives the number. But where the mapping exists?
