    Hello,

    I needed to close my outgoing traffic in port 80.
    After if, all websites that use ssl get offline (timeout).

    I could see that a ssl website need to access external content by port 80. I think that certificate ssl need to get some information.
    Is that a way to change it?

    Best regards
    Joao

    Hello,

    I´m sorry for my english.

    My DC sent me notification that my server was attack other servers using port 80 (brute force attack in wordpress websites).
    While I don´t find the script that was making the attack, I closed my port 80 outgoing traffic.

    Best regards
    Joao
