I have firebird and a webserver running on the same Windows Server 19 box. I want to close port 3050 to outside access, no other machine needs access. But I don't know enough about firewalls to know whether that will affect the internal connection from my websites, and FlameRobin.

Can I safely close the port? Or can I partially close the port?

Thanks,

Kyle

You can specify a different port in the connection on both ends, so it shouldn't be an issue.

It should affect much, if anything, because a lot of applications aren't going to  be using port 3050. If it does, you can always change the port.

If both are running on the same machine, you should be able to safely
close the port to outside access. Whatever the webserver's app is doing
to connect will probably be either direct file access or via the
localhost loopback.

Worst case, if for some reason it does block the webserver, it's quick
and easy to revert.

In this case it is enough to change RemoteBindAddress in firebird.conf to "localhost"
or "127.0.0.1".

In Windows Firewall's 'Inbound rules' create rule for port 3050 and use tab 'Scope' to limit IP adresses, from which port will be accesible. Allow connections only for 'localhost' (127.0.0.1) or LAN (e.g.192.168.0.1/24)
