The getservbyport function retrieves service information corresponding to a port and protocol.
servent * getservbyport( int port, const char *proto );

The servent structure is allocated by Windows Sockets. The application must never attempt to modify this structure or to free any of its components. Furthermore, only one copy of this structure is allocated per thread, so the application should copy any information it needs before issuing any other Windows Sockets function calls.
