Technical description for port 5000:

The usage of the system port 5000 is commonly identified with attempts of connecting two machines that are separated by a NAT (Network Address Translation) gateway. As a user with administrative privileges, this communication port can also be used for the creation of VPN (Virtual Private Network) connections. This port listens for client machines attempting to connect to the host.
For systems running under the Microsoft Windows ME or Windows XP Operating System platforms, the communication port 5000 is also utilized as the default port for the UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocol. This service is noted to hold this network port consistently open, listening for devices that support the technology. This port simplifies intelligent device connection to network environments.
The network port 5000 makes it possible for devices physically connected to a single machine to be shared with other clients under the same network.
This process eliminates the need to modify configuration files or the deployment of centralized servers for connected devices.
