Win2000 open ports
I am currently running Win2000 on a new machine I got, so it's clean and fresh. I've just installed Tiny Personal FW and something odd jumps into sight. Normally I've only got System listening on 137 -> 139 and 1676. Now I've also got these:
SVCHOST.EXE listening on 135, TCP&UDP and 520, UDP
TCPSVCS.EXE listening on 7, 9, 13, 17, 19, all UDP&TCP
Can someone give me a word of explication, since the three MCSE's who I work with say they don't knwo anything 'bout it.
