how to check status of various services and port?

How can i check which service is activated on my AIX Box?
how one can check particular port is open or not (like ftp/telnet port)?
I dont have admin rights

From inside the box you could look at /etc/inetd.conf, but i'm not sure if you can read it without root privileges.

Most services are controlled in AIX via the System Resource Controller (SRC), try the command "lssrc -a". Again, i'm not sure if you can do that without being root.

From outside the box you could use telnet as a makeshift port sniffer:

Code:
telnet <host> <port>

This is my usual test if a network printer is online or not: telnet to port 515 and if the banner of some lpd comes up it works.

I hope this helps.
