    just noticed this the other day and was wondering why port 995 is used and what for?
    Code:
    cppop - accepting on port 110 and 995
    
    never noticed this port being utilized before? does it need to be used and what for now?

    TIA,
    Mickalo

    Port 995 is for Exchange Server supports POP3 over SSL, to be exact. Any server with CentOS, typically, has the following ports on localhost:

    Code:
    (The 1642 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
    PORT     STATE SERVICE
    1/tcp    open  tcpmux
    21/tcp   open  ftp
    22/tcp   open  ssh
    25/tcp   open  smtp
    26/tcp   open  unknown
    53/tcp   open  domain
    80/tcp   open  http
    110/tcp  open  pop3
    111/tcp  open  rpcbind
    143/tcp  open  imap
    443/tcp  open  https
    465/tcp  open  smtps
    631/tcp  open  ipp
    783/tcp  open  hp-alarm-mgr
    953/tcp  open  rndc
    993/tcp  open  imaps
    995/tcp  open  pop3s
    3306/tcp open  mysql

    thx's. We are using Centos 3.8 currently.

    is there a procedure to setup a SSL connections, on the server, for POP accounts so they can use the SSL 995 port if needed ? What sort of a certificate needs to be installed and where ?

    thx's
