Regarding the port number, my guess is that port 2443 is the 2nd 
SSL server 2 + 443 (443 = SSL). Nmap simply uses the common ports 
database to guess what service generally resides at the open port it
found. 
For instance, if I ran my FTP server on port 22, nmap would detect it 
as an SSH server. I think there is a switch to have it grab the banner 
for you, but I have not used this feature.

the switch you mention is -sV ... service identification ... yes i did
use it and the response is mentioned in my earlier mail.
though a small correction to it: it is not MS Distributed Transaction
Server but MS Distrubuted Transaction Coordinator... my bad :)

cheers
