TCP\135 is allowed on the firewall. There are many DC's, NFS servers
connected to the firewall, and need to access resources via TCP\135.

What do you mean strong authentication? I don't manage any of the DCs.
I'm not sure what authentication they use. I'm not too concern of the
authentication scheme that they use.

I like to find out the technical details of converting TCP\135 to
RPC\135. My understanding is TCP\135 or UDP\135 will allow anything that
goes through 135, including blaster, ..., etc. Enforcing RPC\135 will
enable me to lock down the protocol to what program the RPC uses. E.g.,
10000 for portmapper/rpcbind, and some DCOM/MS-RPC for legit MS
applications, such as Exchange, W2K DC. I like to know how stateful
inspection would work for such RPC apps. Could someone please expand on
