    Default Why do ports open on local address? but ZA does not block them.

    When I type netstat -oan cmd, there are some ports opened on local address, which are strange.

    42.x.x.x : 1337, which is for Steve Game Server Control Panel
    42.x.x.x : 1341, which is for Qubes (Manufacturing Execution System)
    42.x.x.x : 1417, which is for Timbuktu Service 1 Port
    42.x.x.x : 1418, which is for Timbuktu Service 2 Port
    42.x.x.x : 1419, which is for Timbuktu Service 3 Port
    Does anyone have any suggestions on why those ports are opened, and ZA does not block them for local address.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions :>

    Firewalls do more than block ports - and usually blocked ports are for unsolicited connections. Port control with IP control and protocols are under the firewall's jurisdiction.

    Most internet games (and LAN games) require "open" ports for the game's application/software. In this situation the ZA is performing "port" and "IP" controlling as required to allow your game to function properly with correct connections.
    Best regards.
