I'm using HP DL360p Gen8 for HFT trading. I want to disable any network services I don't need cause I also want to try to disable Windows Firewall to test if this will improve perfomance.

Could someone suggest what currently is turned on and can be likely turned off having ports list below? I need only RDP (also I drag & drop files via RDP)

I would start with using these 2 programs to find out what is running then may want to post again with descriptions of each process

Process Explorer v15.23 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
