WinXP is even more in that direction, from all reports. I admit to knowing very little about Win2k, but on the only box I've installed Win2k on, it doesn't *appear* to be running: Port State Protocol Service 135 open tcp loc-srv 139 filtered tcp netbios-ssn 445 open tcp microsoft-ds 1025 open tcp list ...unless it runs on one of those 3 other open ports?
