TOPIC: Port 950

Port 950 12 years 1 month ago #4825

I have a VPN server running Windows 2003. I install ISA 2004 and I see something that I don't understand. From my Local Area Network are sent some packets on port 950. The soure IP address are IP address from workstations. I don't understand why are this packets sent fo this server (is not the default gateway).

Could you please confirm whether this is port 950 TCP or UDP..

also, what response comes back.. is the port open on the server or not ? If it is, you can use netstat -anpA on a *nix box or TCPview ( on a winbloze box.

If you still cant figure out what it is.. run nmap with version detection on the port

nmap -sV -p950 <server-ip> -v

make sure you get the latest version of nmap (3.70 at the time of writing this) from

Last case, sniff the traffic going to and from that port

tcpdump -w wierd_stuff -nnXs 1545 port 950

should do the trick..
