Discussion in 'other firewalls' started by Rita, Jul 19, 2004.
can anyone tell me how to close an open port?
basically a port open is a service or an application listening on it, binded to it.
So to close a port, you have to close the associated application/service.
If you can't close it (used for instance by required services), use a firewall to block accesses to it.
thanks for the reply i appreciate it
The Outpost forum FAQ Online Scans - What to do with Open and Closed Ports has plenty of information which should be of help, whatever firewall you run.
thank you for the link ill check it out right now
