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?
