Protocol = Various

I have the system process connected to port 445 (microsoft-ds) but under the protocol column, it is showing as “Various” ???. Just wondering what this means? Shoudn’t this be listed as “TCP”?

Hello,

maybe take a look with WireShark or Packetyzer and filter for port 445 to see what’s going on aside from TCP.
On my system its listed under connections as TCP IN only.

Regards,
Marcel

It seems to show correctly for other connections (outbound) to port 445. I have Ethereal installed so I guess I could use this to investigate. See screenshot below:-

Edit: Btw, thanks for the advice.

Perhaps it changes to “Various” when both TCP & UDP are used on port 445, which is possible.

But, do you mean to have MS File Sharing on?

You could be right as I haven’t seen TCP/UDP listed together.

But, do you mean to have MS File Sharing on?

I haven’t, these are connections to remote computers.
