DCE/RPC Endpoint Mapper (EPM)

This is the endpoint mapper for the ["DCE/RPC"] protocol and an integral part of it.

A client will call the endpoint mapper at the server to ask for a "well known" service. The server will answer the client at which addresses this service is available (or if this service is not available at all).

History

XXX - add a brief description of EPM history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).

Ethereal

The EPM dissector is fully functional.

Preference Settings

There are no EPM specific preference settings.

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of EPM display filter fields can be found in the [http://www.ethereal.com/docs/dfref/e/epm.html display filter reference]

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter EPM protocols while capturing. See ["DCE/RPC"] how to filter on that protocol.
