Port 1033 (netinfo) port is open - what's it for and how do I close it

Discussion in 'Security Software' started by Neil Armstrong, Sep 17, 2003.

  1. I've run Shields up (www.grc.com) to test a clients new Wingate Pro firewall
    on Win2000 server sp4.
    Ideally I'd like all ports to be in full stealth mode.

    The problem is that I'm seeing Port 1033 which I'm told is local netinfo
    port open.

    Now I know what you're thinking 'netspy' - but I don't think so.

    Norton AV with latest definitions doesn't see it and neither does Mcafee's
    excellent online scan.

    I can't see what process might be using this port or what it's using it for.
    I'm downloading fport and I'll try that the next time I'm onsite - but I was
    hoping one of you kind folk would have an idea.
