Hello every one:




Should I open port 80 udp or tcp keep it closed.  If opened do I allow inbound or outbound only.  Or allow all.



Same question for port 443 udp or tcp.




Which one is more secure 443 or port 80?

443 is for secure web connections (HTTPS), port 80 is standard HTTP path for all others not yet running secured websites....


You can try closing nonsecure connections if you wish, and see what does not make it through that you need, if anything..


(99.99% of home users make it through he day without blocking either; servers are another matter entirely.

If he blocks port 80, wouldn't that affect his browsing as a lot of information comes through that port and may not get through 443?
