[AG-TECH] Port Usage by MUD

We've just spotted something that might be relevant to some people - 
we are testing it this afternoon.

It appears that the MUD and Napster (r), (c), whatever!, both use
port 7777.  Our sister site (Daresbury Laboratory) disabled 7777 to
stop people being tempted by Napster about a year ago, and the MUD
hasn't worked since.  Apparently all/most "sons and daughters of
Napster" also use 7777.

I hope to get back to the list next week to fill in some of the "???'s"
in my list of ports used by different applications.
