I have a server running Windows 2000 SP4 on the internet.  I use TCPView to look at the connections to the server and from time to time I see connections to msdtc.exe.  How can I figure out what's being done with those connections?

There is a discouraging amount of SQL-Slammer virus still scanning the Internet, even though it's over a year old.
