XIR3 - Can someone explain the port number behaviour?

I have two questions regarding some of the port numbers that are appearing on my list. Can someone explain this behaviour?They are as follows:

tcp 0 0 *:16538 : LISTEN 13069/boe_filesd

tcp 0 0 *:16541 : LISTEN 13052/boe_filesd

tcp 0 0 *:16542 : LISTEN 13050/boe_jobsd

I have two standalone servers configured on this machine (development box), and therefore two CMS configured to listen on port numbers 16575 and 16525. These are confirmed by the 12th and penultimate line.

Question: Why are another two CMSs also appearing on ports 48300 and 46093 (lines 10 and 11)?

Secondly, I have registered the Desktop Intelligence servers to ports 16535 and 16585 (as shown in lines 5 and 19). They are spawning

child processes on ports 1025 and 1026.

Question: Can I fix the spawned child ports to a fixed range instead of them being selected randomly?

Yes, we do not have Xi3 Pattern books yet, product is quite new

And no, I was not aware of those specific parameters - it's great we have it !

Thank you for posting it here.
