Reconfiguration on Blocked Ports

To provide a more open network inline with the university setting, while still providing some network security, ResNet has re-configured the incoming port blocks. Below is a list of ports that are blocked:

  • 0-21
  • 23-1024
  • 1025-1027
  • 2869
  • 3306
  • 3689
  • 5000
  • 5357
  • 6000-6010

Any port not listed above remains unblocked.

This will allow students who live on campus to do things such as host games on their gaming consoles or their computers. Also, ssh and remote desktop connections will also be possible.

Thank you for your patience as we try to balance network usability and security. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this information.
