There are a number of ports that are filtered at the network edge. These ports may be filtered for a variety of reasons, including:
- Network security - these ports are filtered because they constitute a threat to the security of computers on campus
- Network performance - these ports are filtered because their use can be detrimental to the overall performance of the network
- Acceptable use - these ports are filtered because the applications that make use of these ports are in direct opposition to Clarkson's Acceptable Use Policy
If you have questions or concerns about any of the filtered ports, please contact the OIT HelpDesk at x4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
