Don't stand completely corrected. Check the instances you have
running. You will find that, in general, if an app is used locally,
even *if* the ports are open, they are only open on localhost. This is
true of Visio as well as Office and many other apps. It's only if the
app is being used **as a server** that the port is open to the network
