netstat -apute shows wineserver in LISTEN mode
Whenever I run a windows program under wine, I find that 'netstat -apute' shows that C:\windows\system32\rpcss.exe is on LISTEN mode. On running 'top' and 'ps aux | grep wine' commands, wineserver is seen as active. It goes away after the windows program is properly shut down but not when it is killed. I see that this has been discussed earlier also:

Apparently, wineserver starts everytime wine is launched (, but does it have to connect to network in LISTEN mode? Is there any way to avoid wineserver from becoming active or connecting to the network? Thanks for your help.
