Both of these ports seem to be open on my computer, which is running Windows XP Pro SP2. I don't think I'm using them, so I'd like to stop the services that are using them. Any idea of how this can be done?

Thanks.

Hi bobwood2000,

Microsoft Remote Procedure Call (RPC) uses this port, but DON'T disable this service in any way!!!

Check the properties of your firewall, you can manually close the ports. As you have winXP SP2 the firewall is enabled by default.
Otherwise, if you have a hardware firewall on your network, disable the ports from there. (broadband router??)

Greetings,

Thanks. I'm glad I did not disable anything then.

Actually, I think port 1025 is just used by IIS (Microsoft's web server). By uninstalling it, I was able to stop Windows from listening to port 1025.
