Cognex In-Signt (IANA official) uses these ports:
68 udp - DHCP In-Signt vision system only
502 tcp - Modbus
1069 tcp/udp - In-Sight
1070 tcp - machine status data
2222 udp - Ethernet IP
5753 tcp - audit message server
44818 tcp/udp - Ethernet IP
51069 tcp - In-Sight secure

Some trojans also use this port: BackDoor.Botex [Symantec-2004-062718-3311-99], SweetHeart, Rootshell, Way

The MicroWorld Agent service (MWAGENT.EXE) in MicroWorld Technologies eScan, allows remote or local attackers to gain privileges and execute arbitrary commands by connecting directly to TCP port 2222.
References: [CVE-2007-0655], [BID-23759]

Rockwell Automation ControlLogix is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by the improper validation of input being sent to the buffer. By sending a specially-crafted CIP message to TCP and UDP ports 2222 and 44818, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the CPU to stop logic execution and enter a denial of service.

Backdoor.Win32.Mnets / Remote Stack Buffer Overflow - the backdoor listens for commands on UDP ports 2222 and 4444. Sending a mere 323 bytes we can overwrite the instruction pointer (EIP), potentially giving us program execution flow over the remote Malware.

SANS Internet Storm Center: port 2222

Port numbers in computer networking represent communication endpoints. Ports are unsigned 16-bit integers (0-65535) that identify a specific process, or network service. IANA is responsible for internet protocol resources, including the registration of commonly used port numbers for well-known internet services.
Well Known Ports: 0 through 1023.
Registered Ports: 1024 through 49151.
Dynamic/Private : 49152 through 65535.

TCP ports use the Transmission Control Protocol, the most commonly used protocol on the Internet and any TCP/IP network. TCP enables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent. Guaranteed communication/delivery is the key difference between TCP and UDP.

UDP ports use the Datagram Protocol. Like TCP, UDP is used in combination with IP (the Internet Protocol) and facilitates the transmission of datagrams from one computer to applications on another computer, but unlike TCP, UDP is connectionless and does not guarantee reliable communication; it's up to the application that received the message to process any errors and verify correct delivery. UDP is often used with time-sensitive applications, such as audio/video streaming and realtime gaming, where dropping some packets is preferable to waiting for delayed data.

When troubleshooting unknown open ports, it is useful to find exactly what services/processes are listening to them. This can be accomplished in both Windows command prompt and Linux variants using the "netstat -aon" command. We also recommend runnig multiple anti-virus/anti-malware scans to rule out the possibility of active malicious software. For more detailed and personalized help please use our forums.
