Newly installed Firewalla blocks open ports
I installed the Firewalla red and for some reason it blocked all of my configured open ports. Through the app I went to open ports and it showed 0, even though I have 5 configured open ports which were working prior the firewalla installation. Once I disconnected firewalla everything was reachable.
Why does firewalla block open ports? Is there a way for firewalla to not block any ports but to scan to see if ports are open?
I will close this issue, since I unplugged Firewalla last night and this morning I just plugged it back in and disabled monitoring on a number of device, just keeping the crucial ones. So far external access still remains.
One question, can the open port feature scan for none standard ports or just standard ones, I see 1 of 5 open ports show up, one being a standard one.
Let me know,
The open port scan can only scan the standard ports at the moment. Reason is, as we grow our user base, the server that doing the scan can't really scan that many ports. (and part of it is, our ISP always question the scan's, and we have to tell them we have the consent of the server) We may open up the scan to more ports later as we move forward, or find a different ISP.
The man is watching your traffic huh? I know VZ watches traffic. We will get nasty grams from VZ occasionally. I figured you would be using AWS or Azure to host your services, scalability and programability and all, and I don't believe they are sniffing traffic flows and sending out nasty grams.
