Re: Is The RPC a Protocol or a winXP-Service?

Services, protocols, and ports are completely seperate things. A protocol is something like an IETF standard like http. A service is the software that operates under the protocol, like Apache. The port is the network port (TCP or UDP) that the service runs on, like port 80.

What is The RPC exactly  ?
The RPC  is a Protocol  or a winXP-win2000-Service or a Port?
www.Rabertgraham.com  says that it is a Protocol .
My windows says it is a Service .
Some other articles says that it is a Port .

And another questions :
www.Rabertgraham.com in its FireWall-FAQ  says these lines:

[""Various errors with :
Some servers are misconfigured to map this address.
On the other hand, it is also a hacker technique
to cause names within the hacker domain to resolve
to addresses within a company (including localhost/""]

And my question is :
How do they (Crackers) do that ?
