17185 udp applications Act P202S VoIP WiFi phone undocumented open port, multiple vulnerabilities.
References: [CVE-2006-0374], [CVE-2006-0375], [BID-16288]

The WDB target agent debug service in Wind River VxWorks 6.x, 5.x, and earlier, as used on the Rockwell Automation 1756-ENBT series A with firmware 3.2.6 and 3.6.1 and other products, allows remote attackers to read or modify arbitrary memory locations, perform function calls, or manage tasks via requests to UDP port 17185, a related issue to CVE-2005-3804.
References: [CVE-2010-2965]

Cisco IP Phone (VoIP) 7920 1.0(8) listens to UDP port 17185 to support a VxWorks debugger, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information and cause a denial of service.
References: [CVE-2005-3804] [SECUNIA-17604] [BID-15456]

The debugging feature on the Siemens CP 1604 and CP 1616 interface cards with firmware before 2.5.2 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted packet to UDP port 17185.
References: [CVE-2013-0659]

Schneider Electric SCADAPack could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the enablement of the VxWorks debug agent. By sending specially-crafted requests to UDP Port 17185, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain control of the device or cause a denial of service.

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.

When troubleshooting unknown open ports, it is useful to find exactly what services/processes are listening to them. This can be accomplished in both Windows command prompt and Linux variants using the "netstat -aon" command. We also recommend runnig multiple anti-virus/anti-malware scans to rule out the possibility of active malicious software. For more detailed and personalized help please use our forums.
