"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'd try those ports if I were you...

Remote Procedure Call

The Microsoft Remote Procedure Call (RPC) system service is a secure inter-process communication (IPC) mechanism that enables data exchange and invocation of functionality residing in a different process. The different process can be on the same computer, on the LAN, or across the globe through a WAN or VPN connection. RPC service serves as the RPC endpoint mapper and Component Object Model (COM) Service Control Manager (SCM). Many services depend on the RPC service to start successfully.
