Port(s) Protocol Service Details Source
111 tcp,udp SunRPC Provides information between Unix based systems. Port is often probed, it can be used to fingerprint the Nix OS, and to obtain information about available services. Port used with NFS, NIS, or any rpc-based service.

Port 111 was designed by the Sun Microsystems as a component of their Network File System. It is also known as Open Network Computing Remote Procedure Call (ONC RPC). Port 111 is a port mapper with similar functions to Microsoft's port 135 or DCOM DCE.

Security Concerns: Provides rpc port map without auth, has no filtering or logging, rpcinfo probes can quickly find your Unix hosts. Shut down portmapper on any hosts not requiring rpcs, ensure it is blocked at net perimeters.

Trojans that use this port: ADM worm, MscanWorm, Sadmind/IIS Worm

NFS daemon (nfsd.exe) for Omni-NFS/X 6.1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource exhaustion) via certain packets, possibly with the Urgent (URG) flag set, to port 111.
References: [CVE-1999-1349]

PORTSERV.exe in Emerson DeltaV and DeltaV Workstations 9.3.1, 10.3.1, 11.3, and 11.3.1 and DeltaV ProEssentials Scientific Graph 5.0.0.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via a crafted (1) TCP or (2) UDP packet to port 111.

TCP ports use the Transmission Control Protocol. TCP is the most commonly used protocol on the Internet and any TCP/IP network. Whereas the IP protocol deals only with packets, TCP enables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent. Guaranteed communication/delivery is the key difference between TCP and UDP.

UDP ports use the Datagram Protocol, a communications protocol for the Internet network, transport, and session layers. Like TCP (Transmission Control Protocol), UDP is used with IP (the Internet Protocol) and makes possible the transmission of datagrams from one computer to applications on another computer, but unlike TCP, UDP is connectionless and does not guarantee reliable communication; it's up to the application that received the message to process any errors and verify correct delivery. UDP is often used with time-sensitive applications, such as audio/video streaming, where dropping some packets is preferable to waiting for delayed data.
