Re: Server Port?
Will editing this file alter the port numbers for telnet or FTP used by
cygwin telnet and ftp clients, also some other windows clients? The file
that I found that could be edited was at C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc. I am
on a windows NT system. I figured that the method would involve this file
since my Dad's redhat machine uses the same thing, but I also figured there
would a file in my cygwin directory not the WINNT directory. Do you have any
knowledge about these questions?

Open up a search window and search for the file called services. That is
what cygwin uses.
