Hi all, Just having a problem closing port 21 ( FTP ) & some port scanners tell me that telnet is also open.
I have installed a firewall i cant remember the name of it ( not at my computer at this time ) but i set it to block file transfer protacall & it still has port 21 open .

What im looking for is a firewall with an easy option to block a specific ports, If anyone noes of any could you please let me no.

Is this computer behind a router? If so the router might be opening the port.

Search through the router settings to see if the port of the protocol has been disabled or blocked.
