Debian Configuration :: Firewall Up But Ports Still Open

Sep 9, 2011

I have just switched over from firestart to gufw.I have set all incoming traffic to deny and all outgoing traffic to allow.I have rules set for incoming traffic, and have only opened 1 port on my system for torrents. My router also only has the same port opened which again is for torrents.I use "Network Tools" which is included on squeeze and do a portscan of and I get all kinds of crazy ports coming back as opened. What is even stranger is if I do a few scans, these ports change, so one port on one scan may come up as open, then it will disappear and a different port may show as open.

Mind you none but the torrent port is forwarded in my router, I have no idea what any of these other ports are, or why they are even showing up.What the heck is going on? I dont think this is normal? Am I at any higher risk for attack?

OpenSUSE :: Open Firewall Ports Without Yast?

Jan 23, 2011

how to open firewall ports without using yast. The reason I'm asking is because I'm working on a .sh script for the installation of a couple of programs. Some ports need to be open for the programs to work, I find it really annoying to go to yast and type the ports manually every time. I've looked at /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 but can't seem to find anything, I also know that after the changes I will have to stop start the firewall by running:

SuSEfirewall2 stop
SuSEfirewall2 start

Debian Configuration :: How To Open Ports On Debian?

Jul 19, 2010

I am trying to use thunderbird to connect to gmail. followed the instructions on the gmail help section to set up thunderbird and opened ports 995 for pop and 465 smtp on my router. When that did not work I posted on the thunderbird forum. It was decided there I had a problem with debian since both the thunderbird and router settings were right. doing more research I used nmap and netstat to check for open ports and it seems to me I only have tcp 80 and udp 138 open. downloaded firestarter hoping to solve the problem but in the events section it does not show thunderbird trying to connect to any port. Is this a case of not understanding what I am looking for here. Is there some way to open all ports on debian and then using firestarter to block the traffic I do not want.

OpenSUSE Network :: Firewall - Can Open All Ports For One IP Address

Apr 27, 2010

I have a couple of openSUSE 11.2 machines and each is directly connected to the Internet (they are not behind a router, firewall, etc). I want them to be able to communicate without any firewall restrictions, but keep the firewall rules for all other IP addresses. Is this possible? the software package I'm trying to use randomly chooses a port to use in the range of 32768-61000 and I don't feel comfortable having a port range that wide open on both machines.

Ubuntu Servers :: Ports Not Open - Built In Firewall ?

Jul 26, 2010

I am having trouble getting ports to open, on the router that the server is connected to it is set to DMZ, so everything passing through the router should go to the server right? but when I use a port checker none of the ports that I need to be open are. so my question is does ubuntu have a built in firewall that no one told me about? or something that would block me from having the ports open?

Security :: SonicWall Firewall Or Appliance Open Ports NMAP?

Mar 17, 2011

I am trying to understand why when running nmap against a SonicWALL firewall at a remote location, the SonicWall firewall is saying that most of its 65535 ports are open? I know this cant be correct and remember reading about how some of these network appliances are setup this way to thwart off attacks.

OpenSUSE Network :: Need To Alter Services Files If Ports Open In Firewall?

Jan 11, 2011

I have a question about /etc/services file. If I open ports in firewall, do I need to alter /etc/services file in order for certain apps to work?

kpasswd 464/tcp # kpasswd
kpasswd 464/udp # kpasswd
# Theodore Ts'o <tytso&MIT.EDU>
# 465 is illegal used by eMail Server
smtps 465/tcp # eMail Server
#urd 465/tcp # URL Rendesvous Directory for SSM
igmpv3lite 465/udp # IGMP over UDP for SSM
# Toerless Eckert <eckert&>
digital-vrc 466/tcp # digital-vrc
digital-vrc 466/udp # digital-vrc

Above example shows if 465 tcp isn't altered, Postfix MTA fails to listen on 465 tcp port. What if there's a bigger span 3000:7000 TCP/UDP, is there a need to alter each line by hand?

Security :: Firewall Running Perfectly - No Wide Open Ports Detected

Dec 22, 2009

I now have a firewall up and running: almost perfectly. When I use nmap and perform the most comprehensive scan I can think of, it cannot detect any wide open ports (unless bittorent is running) and cannot fingerprint the OS. My last 2 questions about my firewall (I am very happy now) are:

It seems as though Firestarter has been "abandoned" by the developers, and that gufw is more current. Does it really matter which firewall I use because don't they all do the same thing? I like firestarters system tray icon a lot. 2nd question is I have two open|filtered ports. Are these still pretty well protected?

It is very pleasing to see that I have no open ports, because if you were an experienced Windows user like I was, you got used to the fact you were going to have open ports no matter what. Linux's builtin firewall completely destroys the expensive and useless scams they call Norton and McAfee. Linux officially rocks now

Security :: Public Facing OpenVPN - Open Any Ports On The Router / Firewall

Feb 14, 2011

Within the documentation of example OpenVPN setups there is a setup that shows an OpenVPN Server with two network interfaces. One interfaces is plugged into the public internet network and the second interface is plugged into the private network.

Normally I assume that it would be best to place the OpenVPN system inside the network behind the router and firewall and open only the ports needed on the router to allow access to the OpenVPN system. All other router ports would be closed. This is the first example they show. To see what I am talking about see page(s) 6-7 here -> [URL]

If one were to use the two interface public facing setup, when would that setup best be justified? I guess if you didn't want to open any ports on the router/firewall then this could be justified but then you have to lock down this public system individually instead of having it protected by the network firewall.

Debian :: Why Are Ports Open?

Feb 2, 2010

Just did a check on "shields up" and it says that ten of my ports are open. I get the same result with or without both shorewall and firestarter. I suspect it may have something to do with the mysql server packages added automatically during installation. Am I right. If so, what can be done about it? If not, has anyone any idea how to keep my ports closed?

Debian :: USB Ports Don't Wake Up - Have To Close And Open Lid Of LT

Oct 20, 2015

I have installed Debian Jessie (<-- brilliant OS ) on my uncles Laptop (it is a Thinkpad E540) with Cinnamon as desktop environment. The installation was no problem. Everything apart from one minor thing works nicely. The minor thing however is the following:

I don't know what it is, but when I don't use a particular usb port for a while and then try to plug in a usb stick or a wacom tablet, it doesn't get recognized, it doesn't show up when I use f.e. Code: Select alllsusb. When I close the lid of the laptop and open it again, then the particular usb device gets recognized and cinnamon asks me what to do, f.e. open a folder and show the content of the usb stick I have plugged in. Because of the success on two other laptops I use the following

Code: Select all# /etc/systemd/system/powertop.service
Description=Powertop tunings

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/powertop --auto-tune


to save power on the Thinkpad (this is in no way my service script, I tuned everything using powertop in the terminal after having had logged in, the script above stems from a brilliant user here on the forum). Could it therefore be autosuspend that is not working properly here?

For those who are interested, I have an adsl modem and a router is connected to the modem. eth1 is a connection to the modem. eth0 to the router.

Debian Configuration :: Shorewall (Shoreline?) Firewall Up And Running, But It's Logging To /var/log/messages?

Jan 29, 2011

I've got a Shorewall (Shoreline?) firewall up and running, but it's logging to /var/log/messages. I'd much rather have it logging to another location e.g. /var/log/firewall but can't find (a clear enough) explanation on how to do this. Apparently, it varies greatly depending on the distro, the kernel, and the version of Shorewall that is running. You'd think it would be something as simple as setting a path in a config file, but apparently not. I'm running a stock Lenny kernel on the firewall machine. It comes with version 4.0.15 of Shorewall.
