Hi List!

I got the following answer from the IANA, looks like we can use the assigned numbers file from them.
To be able to use this file as an /etc/services replacement, I'll add a 
small explanation with the URL and alike (as requested by IANA), and use 
the # char to comment out the existing header / footer sections - 
probably tomorrow.
We might also add IANA to our authors file "gave permission" section.

Regards, ULFL

I would like to include the IANA list of assigned port numbers [2]
   into Wireshark, so it will display the "human readable" service
   name instead of only the TCP/UDP/... port number. The file in the
   Wireshark package will be updated from time to time with the IANA
   file, so it won't get outdated too much.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any copyright / license notice of the
   port numbers file, so I would like to ask if there are any legal
   problems to include it into Wireshark. Wireshark itself is open
   source software released under the GPL, so I hope there are no

If you need any further informations about Wireshark, just feel free
   to ask ...
