    Hrmmm. I dont know what all of the ports are for but if my poor memory serves the blackjack port is a trojan horse. For what its worth, tou can find a nice listing of ports at:

    http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

    Sorry couldn't be of more help.

    Hey...
    I take it that your using some flavour of Windows...

    Well, for starters, I believe that the network blackjack is one of the ports used by RPC...

    I think the microsoft DS (445) is one of many ports used for Directory Services, providing name resolution and lookup capabilities, allowing users or devices to locate resources on the network by human readable or well-known names.

    As for the 1083, which is registered to Anasoft License Manager.. I have no bloody idea... the only thing I can find is that its registered that port....

    very suspicious of that one.... heck, I'd be suspicous of all of them, especially if you aren't running 2K/NT/XP....

    If you are suspicious you could try installing/activating a firewall to see if anything is using them. Lots of firewall software around, but www.zonelabs.com is probably as good as anything else (freeware for personal use).

    I'm guessing if you don't know what they are, they shouldn't be running. You can try tauscan from Agnitum.com, or the Cleaner from moosoft.com to scan for trojans and viruses that may be causing those ports to be opened for listening.

    smirc,

    Get a grip. There is no RTFM in this case. These ports aren't identified anywhere except for 445, which is somewhere in Microsoft documentation.

    Anything over 1024 is an upper-level port number and can be pretty much assigned to anything. Port lists simple are lists and don't carry much information. Rather than spew out RTFM in this case, why not offer us your input as to what these ports are (although I'm quite sure that 445 is Directory Services and would have me believe that mindrape is running a Win2K box of some type).

    The other two, 1025 and 1083, I have never seen. A firewall is a good thing for mindrape but I would go beyond ZA. I would suggest Outpost by Agnitum (http://www.agnitum.com/products/outpost/) or Tiny Firewall by Tiny Software (www.tinysoftware.com). They are a little more flexible for configuration.

    RTFM

    I apolgise, obviously looking in the RFC's and doing a little searching around the web it too much to expect.

    Don't be an ass smirc...

    I was paid $20 an hour(which was quite a bit for my age) to participate in internet reseach for a university, and it took me quite a while to find any useful information on those ports... If you wanna be so wonderful, how about you inform us of the great information that you got from looking into the RFC's???


    **sorry if you were truly apoligising.. I've been drinking since 1 o'clock**

    smirc,

    Very simple:

    The one port, 445, can be looked up. It should pull a fair amount of info. Mindrape, check out: http://www.google.com/search?q=port+445. Or check out Microsoft's knowledge-base

    Ports 1025 and 1083 are harder. Given that they are above the 1024 they are not fully assigned anything and are often used by a variety of applications. As such, there are no RFCs on them. Doing a search on port 1025 and/or port 1083 will get hits but nothing that truly defines it. And don't even attempt a search on blackjack network. That will just get you all the casino sites.

    If you have a perferred direct link that could give a further description of these ports, please do share.
