The current SVDRP Port 2001 is being used for several years now, but unfortunately it has never been registered with IANA. As such it does not show up in /etc/services and there is no name resolution for it, i.e. when starting a tcpdump.

While this is not a major issue I'd prefer to register an "official" port with IANA to avoid port conflicts in the future. I already checked with them, but port 2001 is already registered to another service, so doing this we would get a new port number. Since this is freely configurable in vdr (and most plugins/extensions that rely on it) I do not see an issue with that.

Any comments/ objections?

Best regards,
