Port 89 open with Windows Eddie

Recommended Posts

With the Eddie VPN up and running I fail the port scan at grc,com having port 89 open turning it off solves the problem and I pass the shields up test. I've tried changing setting but cannot get the test to pass running Eddie.

Hello!

Do not confuse server ports with your system ports. You can't remotely forward inbound ports below 2048, so packets to port 89 can''t be forwarded to your system. Service of ours listen to port 89 on VPN servers exit-IP address.

Kind regards

Oh I'm not the one confused here as I've been able to get in and elevate from even mail ports rooting a box so again I'm asking why does this port NEED to be open?

Hello!

Because we need it.

What you say about "rooting" :) is impossible because packets to exit-IP address port 89 are processed by a server service and are never forwarded to any client, moreover why should they be forwarded to your specific client instead of any other client?  Same thing for any other port lower than 2048, there are simply NO rules to forward any such port to a specific client.

Kind regards
