ADDSRVTBLE (Add Service Table Entry) Command


The Add Service Table Entry (ADDSRVTBLE) command is used to add a service entry to the service table. You can use the service table to manage the mapping of network services to ports and to record the protocols that the services use.

The service table is shipped with some standard port assignments. Values for common functions supported by Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) are available to the Internet community in the assigned numbers RFC (Request for Comments) document, a formal specification of proposals and standards for a portion of TCP/IP.

Restriction: You must have system configuration (*IOSYSCFG) special authority to use this command.

Required Parameters

SERVICE Specifies the name of the network service to be added to the table. A service can be added to the table more than once. Each service must be uniquely identified by a combination of the port number and the protocol name parameters.

PORT Specifies the port number assigned to the service. This value must be greater than zero.

PROTOCOL Specifies the name of the protocol that the service uses. You can specify a maximum of 32 characters for the protocol name. No checking is done to ensure that the protocol exists.

Optional Parameters
