RVS4000 fw1.0.15 Why is the HTTPS port open!!!! (443 HTTPS) I would like some help in closing this port. Or some advice as to why it is OK to have this port open, but take so much care in stealthing others? If you are going to tell me that it is because the router handles VPN, fine. Then how do I turn off that feature and close this port. Just the fact that the box processes unsolicited packets makes it a target. If I need VPN, I will turn it on. If I was using VPN I would know how to set it up, and that I would need to open this port. But, to have it open by default! What happens if I were to turn off the Firewall, wouldn't the packets then just blow right through to my local machine? It seems a failing if there is no way to toggle this behaviour off. And especially that it is not off naturally when there are no VPN accounts set up for the router to connect with anyways. Wouldn't be better if the VPN system used the user account settings to determine which ip addresses and such it should respond to as being open?? I mean, the machine knows where packets are coming from, why can;t it respond inteligently to the incoming traffice instead of broadcasting itself to the world. Just having this port open makes me a target. I can't 'disable' the HTTPS service under the Firewall tab, then I can't visit ANY https:// addresses. This means not being able to access things as simple as my hotmail account. When can we expect a fix for this?? I am sorry for the tone, but I hook up the new piece of hardware and instantly have a liability to worry about. I buy a Firewall with a gaping hole in it. I am a bit frustrated at the moment.
