Technical description for port 4726:

As an unassigned port, this communication gateway is commonly utilized by the multicast backbone of the Internet. Primarily, the choice for the usage of the port 4726 is based on its availability and avoiding conflict with currently running processes. Using unassigned system ports for the protocol will allow for a smooth execution of services catering to video and audio conferencing.
The network port 4726 is likewise perceived to support low cost streaming of both video and audio streams. It is capable of carrying live broadcasts to various public IP addresses making it suitable for wide area deployment. The port is not expected to handle security protocols since most of the multicasts transmitted via this port are unauthenticated datagrams.
To prevent blocking the gateway firewall, the system port 4726 must be adequately defined in the exceptions list to allow streams to reach internal network hosts.
The communication port 4726 may also be used by operating services to monitor UDP and TCP port activities of the system.
