Service Name: LanmanServer Executable Name: svchost.exe -k netsvcs Log On As: LocalSystem Description: Provides RPC support for file, print and named pipe sharing over the network. The Server service allows the sharing of local resources (such as disks and printers) so that other users on the network can access them. It also allows named pipe communication between applications running on other computers and the users computer, which is used for RPC.
Named pipe communication is memory reserved for the output of one process to be used as input for another process. The input-accepting process does not need to be local to the computer.
Stopping or disabling this service will results in:
•An inability to share files and printers from the users computer with other computers on the network.
•An inability of the users computer to service RPC requests.
•An inability to serve named pipes to other computers on the network..
