The 2nd bullet point reads:

Registered Ports (1024-29151) - assigned by the IANA.

It should probably read:

Registered Ports (1024-49151) - assigned by the IANA.

    Thank you for your input. 

    Yes, you are correct, see below:



    TCP and UDP use 16-bit namespaces for their port number registries, as do SCTP and DCCP. These ports registries are subdivided into three port number ranges, and Section 4 describes the IANA procedures for each range in detail:

    • the Well Known Ports, aka the System Ports, from 0-1023
    • the Registered Ports, aka the User Ports, from 1024-49151
    • the Dynamic Ports, aka the Private Ports, from 49152-65535

    This will be corrected in the next update.
