    How to close a port

    I ran the SG online port scanner and found one open port: TCP7676. This is on a Zyxel PK5001z Modem/Router combo through Centurylink. I'd feel safer if I could close it but I didn't see an obvious way to do this while perusing the modem setup gui. Hopefully it's in there somewhere and I just haven't stumbled upon it yet. Or... maybe it's a setting in the Win10 Firewall? I don't have a 3rd party firewall.

    I generally don't mess with this stuff and probably shouldn't have run the scanner. ;-) However, now that I have, and an open port was found, it's going to bug be till it's closed. Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    Zyxels have that port reserved for WAN management by the ISP.

    Thank you Stonecat! I feel much better. Now back to my oblivious sense of security. ;-)
