    Wow. On what?

    The fastest way, without even knowing what it is, would be to turn it off.

    Well, "ports" aren't like portholes or doors, that is, a physical phenomena that you can close. They are actually communications routes and are "opened" by services or applications that want to use them.

    That gives you two basic options:

    1. Close the application or service that wants to use the port, so it does not get opened.

    2. Use a firewall to block/filter it.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
