    Does anyone know if it's okay to have FD-ISR service listening on port 48288?

    It is ok. it is related to FDISR remote usage capabilities. I have never worried about it, I have never had any activity on the port opened by FDISR it just listen for a connection from FDISR, but other FDISR users block it in the firewall with no harm.

    Greetings stapp,

    Sukarof is correct; we have default port 48288 and 48289 open to listen for remote commands in order to process ISR commands. If you are not going to require remote access into ISR then you can disable port listening with the following commands:

    1. Launch the ISR command line interface. Start, Programs, FirstDefense-ISR, FirstDefense-ISR Control.
    2. To disable ISR port listening we need to set the port number to 0(zero). Execute the command: CONFIG RemotePortNumber 0.

    If you need more assistance with the network commands or the command line interface, you can also reference the ISR help document under Command Line Interface.

    I hope this helps.

    Q: Will this apply across all snapshots?
    A: Yes, this changes an ISR universal setting so all snaphots will reflect the change.
