TCP 135

Is port tcp 135 an RPC? Meaning its similar to unix's init?  When someone tries to connect remotely, RPC (TCP 135)  will open up the appropriate port?
Thanks

Basically this port is opened for Client/Server commnucation. Any client making connection with server will open this port.
You can see using Netstat -n to see what all ports have been opened in your system. Here M$ says something about it: -

We use proprietary software (medical) that dynamically opens up a tcp port when you send certain traffic to it.  
If you terminate the software .exe, and then try sending the same traffic to it...nothing happens. (which is what its supposed to do, since the software is not there to open up the port).

My question is, how is the software dymanically opening up the port? Is it utilizing a type of portmapper service (tcp 135?)
Thanks
