What protocol and port number is used for WMI monitoring?

It is probably mentioned somewhere in this forum but the search mechanism of the forum sucks and I'm not getting any hits searching on "wmi port", "port number" and other strings.


I did learn from one thread that WMI is built on DCOM.  So, does this imply that APM uses TCP port 135 to make a connection and pull WMI data?  We are developing signatures for various protocols for a QoS implementation and trying to figure out what ports WMI uses so we can best classify the traffic.  As network guys we know little about WMI conversations.


If anyone can provide a link to a good KB article on this subject would be much appreciated too.
