Are all these connections to itself and 0.0.0.0:0 listening ports common?
This box is running as a domain controller, email server (native mode hosting multiple domains w/exchange 2000), ftp server, web server, SQL, POP, etc + 1 client behind a firewall. Pratically everythings configured on one box. I know the 2500 dns UDP's are there from MS and think the others are due to the native mode mailboxes and ftp. I would like to see some other TCPView results to compare. Let me know if you need any other information. Thanks!
1. Is this normal?
2. Please explain or confirm why there are so many port connections?
3. Since the machine isn't doing anything does it need to have all these connections?
4. Is there a way to reduce the amount of connections?
