WARNING! -- RPC ports on Win2k

Do not disable RPC service.  Doing so will give you a bad afternoon, as I discovered the hard way.

 I was wondering if anyone knows how to close the RPC ports on a Win2k 
box.
Someone told me that it was possible. Anyone?

Well, you could turn off the rpc service, enable tcp/ip filtering, and/or 
use a firewall.
