  1. I just bumped into this KB this AM (again) and thought I'd offer it as a
    useful thing to have if you tune firewalls or look at threat vectors.


    Port Requirements for the Microsoft Windows Server System;en-us;832017&Product=ISAS

    (832017) - This article discusses the network ports and protocols that are
    used by server products and their subcomponents in the Microsoft Windows
    server system. The Windows server system includes a comprehensive and
    integrated infrastructure that is designed.


    In addition to a matrix table summary of all ports/services, it includes
    section on each service like this:


    The Server system service provides RPC support and file, print, and named
    pipe sharing over the network. The Server service allows the sharing of
    local resources, such as disks and printers, so that other users on the
    network can access them. It also allows named pipe communication between
    programs that are running on the local computer and on other computers.
    Named pipe communication is memory that is reserved for the output of one
    process to be used as input for another process. The input-accepting process
    does not have to be local to the computer.

    System service name: lanmanserver

    Application protocol

    NetBIOS Datagram Service

    NetBIOS Name Resolution

    NetBIOS Session Service
