  • General discussion

  • Hi Team,

    I've some queries regarding default ports!

    1. Where are they used?
    2. Why is HTTP:5985 needed? is it mandatory to enable both HTTP & HTTPS ports?
    3. Is there any modules which should be added for vulnerability attack?
    4. how to disable HTTP if not needed !

    Thanks  in Advance!
