I received 2 replies for this which both are indeed helpful:

a. Setting the time_wait interval to a shorter period (in this sample,
60 secs):
	ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_time_wait_interval 60000
b. Increasing the number of ports in the /etc/system file if you're
using Solaris 7.
	set pty_cnt=3Dnumber	(default in Solaris 7 is 48, max. number
is 3000)

One of my nodes does lots of rsh'ing to other unix boxes which works
fine most of the time.  But during periods of heavy use, I
sometimes get:

   socket:All ports in use

and the rsh does not work. Is there any way to check the availability of
the ports? How to free up ports?
