TCP Channel Detection

Info Nessus Plugin ID 24018


A TCP channel is listening on the remote host.


The remote host is running a TCP-based .NET Remoting Channel Service, also known as a 'TCP channel'. .NET Remoting is an API developed by Microsoft and used for interprocess communications, and a channel service provides the mechanism by which such communications occur. Two channel services are supplied as part of Microsoft's .NET Framework - a TCP channel, which uses binary payloads, and an HTTP channel, which uses SOAP by default.


Limit incoming traffic to this port if desired.
