Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The best and most complete approach would be to run port scanner such as nmap which will probe the ports you tell it to and then inform you of what services are running on servers.

    However you should note that applications can be configured to use non-standard ports. So just because port 69 (tftp) is not opened does not mean that the service is not running using another port.
