Direct Connect Hub Detection

Info Nessus Plugin ID 13751


The remote host contains a peer-to-peer filesharing application.


A Direct Connect 'hub' (or server) is running on this port. Direct Connect is a protocol used for peer-to-peer file-sharing as well as chat, and a hub routes communications among peers. While any type of file may be shared, Direct Connect hubs often handle movies, images, music files, and games, which may not be suitable for use in a business environment.


Make sure that use of this program agrees with your organization's acceptable use and security policies.
