What is etlservicemgr: Foreign Address?

Hello:

I'm using TOR, and when doing netstat I get:

...
tcp        0      0 XXX.XXX.X.X:58208       hufu.ki.i:etlservicemgr ESTABLISHED 
...
tcp        0      0 XXX.XXX.X.X:47353       68.71.46.:etlservicemgr ESTABLISHED 
..,
have it many times

For what I saw here, it is a registered port -9001, for a private company?!!!!-. In wikipedia, says it is registered with the IANA!. Also, for this etlservice, provide this link! -ETL Electronics-

Somebody could explain me this?
I confess that I did not know that some ports coudl be used "officially" by companies/cooperations. Why I have an ESTABLISHED connection with them? This is happening always?

And most important: how do I block this, or any other unauthorized connections!!

Thank you very much.
Waiting for your answers.

EDIT: Ok. I just saw that it is used by TOR. But still intrigued. Waiting for your reply (...sorry for the overreaction hmm)

gromlok. Mostly likely it is just tor using port 9001. Just because it is registered/assigned doesn't mean it won't get used for something else if somebody wants to. They just can't register it if it is already registered. wink

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/to … ter/TorFAQ  search in the page for "9001" and you will find it.
