Opened ports??

    I would like to know which ports are required by plesk to work.

    I have windows2003+plesk7+mailenable1.8+mssql2000 and I am going to configure an external firewall (hardware, not the one in plesk) so I have to find all ports that need to be open for a good operation of the server.

    This is a list of the ports that I managed to make:

    >tcp 20 ftp-data
    >tcp 21 ftp
    >tcp 22 ssh
    >tcp 25 smtp
    >tcp 53 dns
    >udp 53 dns
    >tcp 80 www
    >tcp 99
    >tcp 110 pop3
    >tcp 443 ssl
    >tcp 8443 plesk
    >tcp 2866
    >tcp 3306 mysql
    >tcp 554
    >tcp 1755
    >tcp 3389 rdp (Terminal Server)
    >tcp 2000
    >tcp 5505
    >Tcp 3389
    >Tcp 8009
    >Tcp 8080
    >Tcp 8401
    >Tcp 8425
    >Tcp 2025
    >Tcp 143 imap

    Are there any more that need to be open? Any suggestions will be appreciated... thanks in advance!

    Imho #1 rule on the internet: You don't want to open ports. <g>

    but if you absolutely have to open them. go for the bare minimum.

    21 -> ftp
    25 -> smtp
    53 (tcp/udp) -> dns
    80 -> web
    110 -> pop
    443 -> ssl
    3389 -> rdp
    8443 -> plesk management.

    These should be the only ports you need.

    If you don't need run a dns server .. or SSL or one of the other services don't open port for them.

    Suggestion configure your firewall to re-route the rdp and plesk ports. or only accept traffic from a limited amount of IP's

    what about samba..? + other

    What about samba port 139, and the other modules that comes with for the Counter Strike..

    Port 139 is probably the most dangerous port to have opened on the internet.
