Ubuntu: Why is TCP port 514 open on my Ubuntu 16.10?



Question:

TCP port 514 is open on my system, and I don't know why.

Here's what I see:

As far as I know, I haven't enabled any rlogin/ssh services. Can somebody help me track down why this port is open, and/or what's using it?


Solution:1

Ah... I had enabled port 514 in /etc/rsyslog.conf to allow syslog entries from my router...

  # provides UDP syslog reception  module(load="imudp")  input(type="imudp" port="514")    # provides TCP syslog reception  module(load="imtcp")  input(type="imtcp" port="514")
