    Why does gss.exe always maintain a listening port in the CLOSE_WAIT state?

    i would guess that it is an issue with GSS's automatically checking for updates.. i would try disabling GSS's automatic updating..

    Thanks.

    Why isn't the connection in the LISTENING state?

    Because it doesn't need to wait or "listen" for an incoming connection ;) . It only needs outbound access for checking for updates
