FLAME uses an unofficial protocol number (0x4040), any tips on how to get an official IANA number would be highly appreciated.

Ethernet protocol number I assume you mean. If so this at least used to
be handled by the IEEE, along with ethernet mac address ranges.

Yes ethernet protocol (it's below IP level), I didn't realise that IEEE also handled the portnumbers. I'll check the ieee website to see how it works, tnx!

IEEE doesn't handle port numbers. Port numbers are for whatever is
layered on top of ethernet, so you need to register those with the
appropriate authorities (IANA for IP).

Sorry, that was a typo and a thinko, I usually think above IP, my colleague is more used to under IP ;-)
