Sources for services/protocols

I'm trying to look up what some of the ports/services I'm finding are.  For instance, 12076 has a service called gjamer.  When I try to Google (or Bing) it, it just tells me it's on port 12076, which is of no value at all.  Can anyone point me to a good source for such information, please?  

Also, does anyone know what gjamer is?

Thank you,

There are standard ports, but there's no authority that enforces who uses what port.  Generally speaking, ports over 1024 are a free-for-all.

Understood, but I need to know what the services are that I'm seeing, such as what gjamer is, not just what port it uses.  I can already see what port it uses (same on mine as on someone who listed all his ports/services).  Have you heard of gjamer and what it does?

Oh, sorry, I guess you were answering the question I started out with.  Okay, but can you suggest locations where I might find answers to what the services are, given that Google and Bing aren't helping?

There is a list of known service names at IANA site (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority)
I don't know if it's currently updated but it's a great resource:

There is, and thank you, but it only lists the service, not what the service is used for.

There is another list with more information and references into the link: Only some well known and standard services (defined by a RFC) are linked.

Regarding the port/app you reference in your OP, it appears gjamer is malware - a Trojan, specifically.

For what it's worth, I searched on Google, using both the port and the service name.
