close default ports on Aruba Mobility Controller

Hello Airheads:

 

I would like your help with a procedure to close default ports that it hasn't been used. We would like to close some default ports for security reasons.

 

I found a description of the ports and we don't use some services like 1723, 500, 8082, etc.

Best regards

Re: close default ports on Aruba Mobility Controller

Why do you want to block those ports?  Your answer will determine the proper method to be used.

Re: close default ports on Aruba Mobility Controller

for security reasons, we had an internal vulnerabilities scanning and the security department asked us to block these ports.

Re: close default ports on Aruba Mobility Controller

I would save some time and give your security group that document.  Many automated scanners generate false positives for those ports.
