d4p posted a question in VPN Questions and General SupportHi guys, I got the feeling I'm asking an already answered question, When I create a VPN connection, I get an IP address in the country I chose. When I do a Port Scan of that IP address (for example with nmap) I see allot of OPEN ports. >> nmap ***.***.***.*** Starting Nmap 7.70 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2019-**-** 16:37 WAT Nmap scan report for ***.***.***.*** Host is up (0.079s latency). Not shown: 979 closed ports PORT STATE SERVICE 22/tcp open ssh 25/tcp filtered smtp 53/tcp open domain 80/tcp open http 135/tcp filtered msrpc 139/tcp filtered netbios-ssn 389/tcp open ldap 443/tcp open https 445/tcp filtered microsoft-ds 465/tcp open smtps 993/tcp open imaps 995/tcp open pop3s 1198/tcp open cajo-discovery 1723/tcp open pptp 2000/tcp open cisco-sccp 4443/tcp open pharos 4444/tcp filtered krb524 4445/tcp filtered upnotifyp 5060/tcp open sip 7070/tcp open realserver 8443/tcp open https-alt Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 6.48 seconds note: some data is obfuscated with '*''s The thing is, I'm sure I do not have these ports open or such services running. QUESTION: Can somebody explain a bit what these ports are and how this kinda works. And in the case I have a service/port open how would I see it and am I 'safe'. Many thanks, and merry Xmas/newyear..
I noticed that TorGuard offers 5x simultaneous connections for their services, which I would assume means they offer for TorGuard Proxy as well. What I am interested in is understanding what this means, or how it works, for TorGuard Proxy. Does this mean that I can be connected to the proxy service from 5 different IP addresses? Does this mean that a total number of logins limited to 5 and if so does that limit uTorrent to only 5 connections total? Does each Torrent take up a login -- even if all of them are being managed from the same client? My goal for understanding how this works is so that I can run two uTorrent clients simultaneously so that one client can run on my HTPC/Plex Box and another can run on my laptop that I use from different locations. I just don't understand fully how this would effect my connections though. Any explanation and clarification would greatly be appreciated.
