Does anyone know what services on the Remoteware Workstation is using port
80?

Every hour we see a connection attempt from our Remoteware workstation to
our Remoteware Server on Port 80. Does anyone know what service this could
be? Is it required? We do not have any web servers on either the
workstation or Remoteware server.

Willie -

I'm not exactly sure I understand your question, so if you can please send
some more information it'd be very helpful.

1. How are you verifying that the traffic is coming from the RW workstation
and going to the RW server? Via a packetsniffer like Ethereal or something
like that?
2. What brought this to your attention in the first place?
3. Are you saying that the source port on the workstation is 80, or the
destination port is 80 on the RW server?

Usually a TCP connection uses a random local port to connect to a specific
destination port, hence the reason I'm asking.

Thanks!

Yes, one of our network administrators was using a packet sniffer. We
normally block Port80 access on some of our secure servers so one of our
network administrators noticed a connection attempt from the IP address of
one of our Remoteware Workstations to the IP address of our Remoteware
Server on Port 80. It happens at the top of every hour. Everthing appears
to be working fine. It's just a strange mystery to us.

We are investigating that it may be a windows related service so this very
well may have nothing to do with Remoteware, but because the connection
attempt is occuring between the Remoteware workstation and Remoteware
server, I figured I would ask in the event that this is a known issue.
