Ports scanned

Port 21: FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

Port 21 is used for the File Transfer Protocol (FTP), which allows users to transfer files between a client and server on a computer network. FTP is commonly used for uploading and downloading files to and from web servers.

Port 22: SSH (Secure Shell)

Port 22 is used for Secure Shell (SSH), a cryptographic network protocol for operating network services securely over an unsecured network. It is commonly used for secure logins, file transfers (using SCP or SFTP), and executing remote commands.

Port 23: Telnet

Port 23 is used for the Telnet protocol, which provides a bidirectional interactive text-oriented communication facility using a virtual terminal connection. Telnet is mostly obsolete and has been replaced by SSH due to its lack of security.

Port 25: SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)

Port 25 is used for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), which is used to send email messages between servers. It is one of the oldest and most commonly used protocols for email communication.

Port 53: DNS (Domain Name System)

Port 53 is used for the Domain Name System (DNS), which translates human-readable domain names (like www.example.com) into IP addresses (like DNS is essential for the functioning of the internet.

Port 80: HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)

Port 80 is used for Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which is the foundation of data communication on the World Wide Web. It is used for transferring web pages and related data from a web server to a web browser.

Port 110: POP3 (Post Office Protocol version 3)

Port 110 is used for the Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3), which is used by email clients to retrieve emails from a mail server. POP3 allows users to download emails to their local computer and read them offline.

Port 143: IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol)

Port 143 is used for the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP), which allows email clients to access and manipulate emails stored on a mail server. Unlike POP3, IMAP allows for more complex interaction with mailboxes, including multiple folders and syncing between devices.

Port 443: HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure)

Port 443 is used for HTTPS, which is the secure version of HTTP. HTTPS uses SSL/TLS to encrypt data transferred between a web server and a web browser, providing a secure communication channel for online transactions and sensitive information.

Port 445: SMB (Server Message Block)

Port 445 is used for the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol, which provides shared access to files, printers, and serial ports between nodes on a network. SMB is commonly used in Windows networks for file and printer sharing.

Port 3306: MySQL Database

Port 3306 is used for the MySQL Database service, which is a widely used open-source relational database management system. This port allows client applications to connect to the MySQL database server to perform database operations.

Port 3389: RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol)

Port 3389 is used for the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), which allows users to connect to another computer over a network and control it as if they were sitting in front of it. RDP is commonly used for remote management and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Port 5900: VNC (Virtual Network Computing)

Port 5900 is used for Virtual Network Computing (VNC), which allows users to remotely control another computer over a network. VNC transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction.

Port 8080: HTTP Alternate

Port 8080 is commonly used as an alternative to port 80 for HTTP traffic. It is often used for testing web servers, proxy servers, and running web applications when port 80 is already in use or restricted.

These descriptions provide an overview of the common uses for each port, explaining their roles in various network protocols and services.
