Epo is scanning network on port 135

Jump to solution

Greetings!

Another system admin in our company just confirmed that he receives reports on Epo scanning on port 135 every couple of minutes.

I was wonder what would that be? The strangest thing is that this "scanning process" scans subnets which do not exist in our environment, for example: 192.168.sth.5

If I take a look on Epolicy-console I see that we have set up only default ports:

Agent-to-server communication port: 80
Agent-to-server communication secure port: Enabled on port 443
Agent wake-up communication port: 8081
Agent broadcast communication port: 8082
Console-to-application server communication port: 8443
Client-to-server authenticated communication port: 8444


We are using:

4.6.0 epo

Mcafee agent: 4.6.0.1694

VirusScan 8.8.0.777

Are you using RSD? This sounds like an RSD sensor is configured to do OS fingerprinting of detected systems...

Just a quick question. I have disabled this RSD, can you tell me the main feature about this RSD.

What would be the benefits of having it on?

In a nutshell, RSD is used to detect devices on your network that don't have an agent. Please see the "Detecting Rogue Systems" section of the ePO 4.6 Product Guide for a full description.
