I'm currently tightening up our Windows 2008 R2 Web server's software firewall rules. There are 4 open ports which I am not sure whether I need them or not:
Name: Windows Backup (RPC), Port: RPC Dynamic Ports Name: Windows Backup (RPC-EPMAP), Port: RPC Endpoint Mapper Name: Windows System Resource Manager (DCOM-In), Port: 135 Name: Windows System Resource Manager (TCP-In), Port: RPC Dynamic Ports
- Regarding windows backup ports: I guess I don't need these since the server simply backups itself onto a local hard disk and management of backups is done through remote desktop
- Regarding Windows System Resource Manager: I am not sure what this is or why I would need open ports to it.
Should I leave the ports open, or should I close them?
