A portscan of my iPhone XS (iOS 14.2) in cellular data mode shows that ports 1080 (Socks), 1083 (Anasoft License Manager), and 8021 (ftp-proxy) are open, and I can’t figure out why or how to close them. The ports show as open on any scan of “localhost”, 127.0.0.1, and 0.0.0.0, but do not show as open when scanning the external or internal IP address thru my WiFi router (I have these ports blocked in my WiFi firewall.)
The ports are not listed by Apple or Verizon. Talked to Apple Support and they basically shrugged and told me to ask someone else.
Does anyone else have this, know if it’s atypical, or have any suggestions on how to close them?
EarthbenderJ, I want to make sure we are on the same page. What is the overall outcome you are looking to accomplish? why are you looking to close the ports?
Hello, EarthbenderJ. We would recommend setting up a secure password for your Hotspot. This can be done by going to Settings > Personal Hotspot > Wi-Fi Password. If you have other devices that had connected to your Hotspot before, changing the password will prevent those devices from connecting to your Hotspot as they will no longer have the correct password.
