What is this port 2001 used for on the routers??

A security information officer is doing port scans on our network. Various models of routers keep showing port 2001 open. I need an explanation of what this port is used for and its use for potential security hacks.

Re: What is this port 2001 used for on the routers??

There are TCP ports available for reverse

telnet connectios to physical lines on

a NAS (usually); so port 2001 would be

for line 1 of the NAS.

You can disable this entirely with the

line command .

Or, you can use AAA:

The ports that are potentially usable are here:
