This Information applies to:
Running an on-line security test such as those offered
by GRC & Symantec result in a message indicating that port 80 is
open and a potential security risk.
The X-Modem contains a web server used to administer
it. As the modem works as a transparent bridge to the internet
it can not tell where the web request comes from until it has received
a request. This does not mean the modem is insecure as the response
received by anyone connecting to the modem from the internet is
Hasbani Web Server Error Report:
Server Error: 403 Forbidden
However some users may prefer that the modem does
not respond at all on port 80.
To prevent the X-Modem from responding on port 80
the web interface can be moved to an alternative port, for example
port 8000. This can be done in the advanced options on the modem.
When the port is changed the port number will need to be appended
to the URL for accessing the modem. In the example port 8000 would
mean the modem would be accessible from http://10.0.0.2:8000
