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?
