Ports 554 and 7070

Hiya, I was doing a port scan on my Droplet (as you do), and I noticed ports 554 and 7070 were open. I assumed they were part of some management interface thing, but I thought it best to make sure. Plus I’m mildly curious :P

I think you’ll all find that you’ve got a Verizon FiOS router (or perhaps others, too) between you and the destination. I just ran into this, and I can telnet *:7070 and *:554 and get a connection, which would seem to imply that the router is intercepting traffic on those ports. Commodity hardware, baby.

Running the port scan from a remote machine does not yield these results.

OK, ignore me. I think it’s something hiding on my network that’s interfering.

Various different routers (Verizon FiOS, BT Home Hub, Apple Airport Extreme, …) show ports 554 and 7070 as open for all IPs for some reason.
