Port(s) Protocol Service Details Source
32779 udp applications Novell Netware is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the caller_name xdrDecodeString function in the XNFS.NLM component when processing NFS requests. By sending a specially-crafted NFS RPC request to UDP port 32779, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the server to crash.

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.
