WMI connection failing with error

Using Powershell, I am trying to run a command on a remote server.  I am finding our Hardware NetScreen firewall dropping traffic on port 2744.  The firewall is configured to allow 445 and 135 traffic, but I am not sure why it needs this other port or what it is even.  Is this an RPC random assigned port?  Am I going to have to go to every server in our domain and force the rpc port :(
