Understanding Microsoft RPC Services

MS RPC is the Microsoft implementation of the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) RPC. Like the Sun RPC, the MS RPC provides a way for a program running on one host to call procedures in a program running on another host. The MS RPC is dynamically negotiated based on the service program's universal unique identifier (UUID). The specific UUID is mapped to a transport address.

Predefined Microsoft remote procedure call (MS RPC) services include:
