While I was doing a pentest I found TCP port number 32000 open using
nmap. The service was unknown.

Any idea of what service can be running on this port?

Nmap only knows about services in its services file.

Google turned these possibilities up... but no specific mention of the
strange com string. Perhaps you could try issuing smtp commands (helo,
