Hi guys. I need fsockopen, to check if a server is running a proccess on a non standard port. fsockopen works if i try to connect to port 80, or 25. but it doesn't work on a higher ports, such as 8010, 8020, 5000 ecc. There is a way to make this ports open just for outcoming connections?

All Virtual Servers by default have their firewall enabled. We also have our own firewall in front of the Virtual Servers but that firewall is setup to allow most inbound traffic towards your servers. The firewall on your server such as the "Windows Firewall" is set to be much more restrictive to what it allows by default. You can then edit your own firewall to allow access for whatever ports you specify. Basically our firewall won't prevent you from opening up any needed ports.
