What Ports Does PCoIP Use? The Packet Capture Says It All

Its been somewhat difficult to find accurate info on the PCoIP protocol by Teradici.  Specifically, what ports does it use.  I have found many articles where they say it used port 4172 OR 50002.  However, one of my clients and I found that if you take a packet capture when actually doing this from a laptop, you will find that it actually uses both protocols in version 5.  Very interesting...  This is important when you are trying to implement QoS for this.  Notice both source and destination ports on the items circled.
