    Hello to all,
    i would like to ask if i will be able to block FTP 21 port. Is something that i should be aware of?
    I am currently use SFTP with a custom port so i don't use 21 port or share it with anyone else.

    I could simply block the incoming/out coming port from firewall or should i consider something else?

    Thank you for your time.

    HI @Michaelit

    If you don't use FTP only SFTP and you don't want anyone to be able to use FTP you can definitely block port 21.
