I am looking in chapter 3 of the study guide and i am looking at the list of rpcapd parameters for rpcapd. How do I get to the command line in rpcapd in order to change parameters?

Thanks. Also this part of the Wireshark User's Guide could be helpful, although it could do more explaining rpcapd itself:

From the manual :

The service has a set of "standard" parameters, i.e. it it launched with the "-d" flag (in orde to make it running as a service) and the "-f rpcapd.ini" flag. The user can create a file called rpcapd.ini in the same folder of the executable, and put the configuration commands in there.
