These are all good, and certainly in general terms, are the way to map TCP services (and hence protocols) to services. 

However if you want to do EXACTLY what the original poster wanted, this doesn't work. In Nicolas' example if you see a HTTP request coming in from say on TCP port 12345 connecting to <server_host_IP_address> on port 80,  all you can say is that ONE of the 9 httpd processes received the request, but you can't say which one. This might be important if you are trying to say determine if you have a session persistence issue or the like.

Regards, Martin
