You mean "Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator" ?

What kind of response do you get, when you connect to the port with
netcat and type "GET / HTTP/1.0<enter><enter>" ?

It is probably matching one of ^...\0..$ or ^ERROR\n$ patterns...

hping2 -S -V -n -c 1 -p 2443 -t 7 TARGET_IP
using eth0, addr: MY_IP, MTU: 1500
S set, 40 headers + 0 data bytes

len=46 ip=TARGET_IP ttl=249 id=40109 tos=0 iplen=40
sport=2443 flags=RA seq=0 win=0 rtt=6.3 ms
seq=80210401 ack=1098187429 sum=ec0b urp=0

This packet seems to be generated on Linux 2.0/2.2 (win=0, ttl=255,
ack!=0). Try p0f for TCP OS fingerprinting.

hping2 -S -V -n -c 1 -p 2443 -t 8 TARGET_IP
using eth0, addr: MY_IP, MTU: 1500
S set, 40 headers + 0 data bytes

len=46 ip=TARGET_IP ttl=122 id=16401 tos=0 iplen=44
sport=2443 flags=SA seq=0 win=16384 rtt=6.1 ms
seq=416937317 ack=1244107777 sum=61fe urp=0

This packet looks like a packet from MS Windows 2000.

b) is it possible to determine the IP of the 7th HOP.

You could try fingerprinting IP blocks around it, good luck :-)
Try elicit ICMP error messages from the device too.

You could also try getting that info from the node (router? cisco?) in
front of it (SNMP? NTP?).
