TCP Port 8172 on Server 2008

q: While configuring ARR (Microsoft's Application Request Routing Service) the application requires connection to Server Farm members over tcp port 8172.  Using the command "netstat -ano | find ":8172" we confirmed the server farm members were not already listening on port 8172.
a: We discovered port 8172 is associated with WMSVC the "Web Management Service".
