On a unix box, try looking in /etc/services. Or use the NIS services file,
by typing ypcat services.
z39.50 210/tcp wais #ANSI Z39.50
z39.50 210/udp wais #ANSI Z39.50
nntp 119/tcp usenet #Network News Transfer Protocol
nntp 119/udp usenet #Network News Transfer Protocol
on a FreeBSD box here.
Unless of course you have stripped down the services file (which one would
do in building a firewall anyway).
