try rpcinfo to see if they are ports used by an RPC service

rpcinfo -p {machine name} or on the machine itself "rpcinfo -p

according to http://www.isi.edu/in-notes/iana/assignments/port-numbers,
786 is allocated to something called "Concert"; but that may not be what
it is used for on your systems.
