[ejabberd] ejabberd opening unperdictable high number ports

Apart from c2s and s2s ports, ejabberd seems to be listening on one
high numbered tcp port.
That port number seem to be different from one start/stop cycle to another.  Can
someone explain the implications for this?  My current firewall rule
automatically blocks these
ports.   These port numbers are not listed in /etc/services.

Unrelated to the above issue, what is the implication of blocking 4369
(erlang port mapper) which
seems to be opened with ejabberd usage.

I am using centos 5.4

Thanks in advance
