We've got open unsecure port complaint in security audit. Reviewing shows that the inbound connection port is assigned to Solve Operations in socket definitions.

 *- SOCKETS - TCP/IP Sockets Interface ----------------------------------------*

| Inbound Connections Port .... 2636     (NONE, 257 to 65535)                |

 |                                                                             |

Is it possible to secure this connection or to restrict the access to whitelist defined addresses?


Any SOLVE / Netmaster product in which the SOCKETS parameter group is active.


The SOLVE / NetMaster prodocts do not supply in-product support for securing ports defined in the customizer (/PARMS).  
The products do support IBM's AT-TLS and this is the recommended method for those who require sockets.
