Change FTP port on MBL


#1

Hello guys … I’m setting up my FTP server on MBL but I want to know is it possible to change the port from 21 to something else.???

And are there other ways to up the security??

Not that I know of…

Just keep in mind, from a security standpoint, changing the application port number is about a 2-second road block.

Any good port scanner will discover the new port and immediately identify it as FTP service because of the fingerprint it gives when a connection is opened to it.

The best security comes from not having it accessible via the internet.

Use STRONG User IDs and Passwords.

Only enable the Port Forward when you need to.
