Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service

Updated: December 3, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service (RpcSs) listens on a set of the computer's network interfaces. Using RPC Firewall Filters, an administrator can control the network interfaces that RpcSs is allowed to listen on. The administrator can use RPC Firewall Filters to block some interfaces from being accessed over a given network interface while allowing other interfaces to be accessed over the same network interface. RPC Firewall Filters make it possible for the administrator to configure network interface access on a per-interface level of detail.

Aspects

The following is a list of all aspects that are part of this managed entity:

Name Description

Deprecated RPC Feature Support

Remote procedure call (RPC) methods that are called on software features or programming objects that are deprecated in this version of the operating system are not supported.

Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service Endpoint Functionality

Administrators can configure the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service (RpcSs) to listen on a subset of the computer's network interfaces using RPC Firewall Filters. The administrator can use RPC Firewall Filters to block some interfaces from being accessed over a given network interface and while allowing other interfaces to be accessed over the same network interface. RPC Firewall Filters make it possible for an administrator to configure network interface access on a per-interface level of detail.

RPC Firewall Filters comprise a set of rules and conditions that the administrator specifies. The Ep_add Layer filter supports port addition to processes that host a given interface. By creating an Ep_add Layer filter, an administrator can force an interface to receive calls over the port that the administrator specifies when the administrator creates the filter. If the port that is specified in the RPC Firewall Filter is already in use, the system registers a port conflict error.

RPC Filter Functionality

Administrators can configure Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Services (RpcSs) to listen on a subset of the computer's network interfaces using RPC Firewall Filters.

RPC Firewall Filters comprise a set of rules and conditions that an administrator specifies. The administrator must add the RPC filter rules and the RPC filter conditions before creating the RPC Firewall Filter.
